1708 tape? I mentioned that to Joe a couple times, I buy it at Sheppards because they stock it. Is such a handy product as you can keep it in the boat, carry it around, physically pull it off the spool to measure etc etc.I've used both LBI and Mertons. Only one bad experience with LBI when they sold me a bad batch of nidabond. There were big chunks of crystallized resin throughout the bucket. I did return it for a store credit which is what I wanted. I still buy a few things from LBI that Joe doesn't carry.
Joe is a great guy to deal with and was at Mertons just today. Picked up some coosa, foam, resin and ordered some 8" tape.
My first boat was built by Legnos. It was a Mystic 20 catboat.Peter Legnos of LBI in Groton, CT is the expert. He has designed and built boats in addition to working with navy. Total Boat products are also very good. Andy of Boatworks Today demonstrates many of their products.
mertons or lbi?When ethanol was first known to eat up fiberglass tanks they sold a resin that was advertised to work with ethanol ., It didn't work and was pulled off the web site and denied it was posted that way. Learned the hard way and had to do the tanks twice. A few other buddy's were in the same boat!! Little humor ... wasn't very humorous then!!
