  HELP! Repair question on Poke Boat
  Posted by: openboater on Sep-06-13 1:29 PM (EST)
   Category: Kayaks 

Does anyone know what type of resin Phoenix uses to build their Poke Boat. I can't get a straight answer out of them. I have lots of Poly and Vinyl ester resin, but I can't confirm if in fact they use Epoxy (can't use an ester resin on Epoxy). HELP!

Thanks,

openboater

  They use vinyl ester. But you're better

off using West or another high quality epoxy. I have a Phoenix, and epoxy repairs have held up perfectly. I've used vinylester to repair other boats, and those patches were pretty good, but epoxy just sticks better.
