Classic boats are renowned for gleaming brightwork, but even modern fiberglass boats can still utilize wood in structural elements. In a moist environment, fungi can easily take hold and begin to rot the fibers. To stave off serious and expensive damage, savvy owners rely on BoatLIFE Git-Rot. The easy-to-use remedy brings wood back to its original strength and stops decay in its tracks. It's so trusted, it's been used to restore the White House, the Vanderbilt Museum, Mansion & Planetarium and other historic landmarks.
Made in the USA, Git-Rot is a two-part epoxy that soaks deep into dry wood fibers—rotted or clean—by capillary action on both dimensional stock and plywoods. Fast-acting, it has a 30-minute pot life for ample work time. After curing overnight, it's sandable and paintable, can be drilled and screwed, and is compatible with fiberglass resins, epoxies and most sealants. It's ideal for internal and external applications, especially transoms, stringers, cabin tops and bulkheads. Suggested retail prices for BoatLIFE Git-Rot are $24.58 for 4 fl. oz.; $56.15 for 16 fl. oz.; and $94.75 for 32 fl. oz.
