As a new boat owner, you’ve relegated the idea of keeping putty handy into the category of other “silly” ideas. After all, you figure, putty can’t possibly be so versatile that it can handle all of those repairs it professes to handle…even handling the rigors of being in water.
You’re wrong, of course. Fix Repair Putty can be used underwater, can be used for a high variety of repairs, and should be in your essential boat supply kit. Don’t believe us? Let’s look at four handy uses for boat repair putty.
There’s nothing more frustrating than a scratch, especially on a boat that’s free of them. No matter how much you clean your boat, that scratch will make it look older and more used than it really is.
The easy solution is to repair the scratch, of course, but many boat owners put it off because they think it will take longer than it really does. There may be no better introduction to the uses of boat repair putty than fixing a scratch: you’ll learn how to apply, sand, and repaint the area in a process you may have to repeat many times over your boating career. What’s more, scratches require a minimal use of putty, which means scratch repair doesn’t have to break the bank.
More serious than scratches, cracks too can be repaired by boat repair putty if you’re working with the right kind of putty. By properly filling a crack, you can seal off any potential leaks from the outside and easily sand down the cured putty to restore the smooth look you’ve been looking for. And since Fix Repair Putty works on fiberglass, wood, metal, and more, you’ll find that an entire range of cracks fall under the umbrella of “easy putty fixes.”
Allow 24 hours for our Fix Repair Putty to cure and you’ll find that you can do all sorts of things with it, including:
Essentially, your putty will function much like the substance that it’s repairing. If you have some paint that needs repairing or need to paint over an area which you repaired with Fix Repair Putty, you can sand the area down for smoothness, apply a new coat of paint, and restore the overall look of the area as if there never had been a repair in the first place.
Repairing Multiple Materials
It’s the versatility of putty that really separates it from other products in your boat repair kit. Putty can be used to aid fiberglass, wood, metal, glass, and even concrete. And since it’s resistant to oil,
gasoline, alcohol, caustic detergent, and saltwater oxidation, it can be used underwater after a 24 hour cure renders it “like steel.” You can clean the putty like many other materials with simple soap and water, too.
The end result? Fix Repair Putty has just about everything you could need in for repair putty and more than justifies its space in your boat repair kit with its versatility and strength. Heck, you may even find yourself looking for scratches to repair. Just don’t go scratching up your boat just so you can use some putty.
