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
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.
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.
