Good product at a good price!
by Victor from Stover, Missouri on March 09, 2014
I applied this epoxy on a 10x16 metal cellar I built. I applied it below the recommended temperature so I warmed the part 2 can in hot water and set the larger part 1 can in front of our wood heater to warm. I mixed them both in the larger part 1 can and they mixed good. It applied easily and covered very well. iboats shipped my product immediately.

Is this recommended for application to an aluminum hull that would used in sal er? (This is unclear from the product sescription!)?
Blue Water Marine confirms that it will work great for your aluminum hull, so no problem with your application.
