• Rebuilding A Foam Cored Rudder~Part 5

    Saturday, August 16, 2014

    The last video of this series! Here I cover a great product from Pettit Paint! Their barrier coat system called Pettit Protect. An easy to use protective system that helps prevent the formation of blisters in the fiberglass. You can find more information on this product HERE… This system is mixed 3:1 (3 parts base to 1 part catalyst) and if needed can be thinned up to 10% overall volume with Pettit 97 Epoxy Thinner to help with rolling the material out a bit smoother….

The foam that I used in this video was a #16 closed cell urethane foam supplied by US-Composites. Here’s a link to their foam page for spec’s and pricing. In total I believe I used roughly 4 gallons (2 gal of part A, and 2 gal of part B) for this rudder which was for a Freedom 35. When doing this type of repair, it really helps to have the rudder mounted on a couple of saw horses. This allows good access to all sides…
