    "gelcoat should never be thinned".......emmmm......NEVER?

    Sometimes we do not do everything by the book my friend.

    I do agree that it should not generally be thinned, but never...?

    That is one nice looking boat too mate, good on ya.

    I prefer external mix for a gel gun, I work in China, and the KISS system reigns supreme....oh, unless they forget to turn on the MEKP....yep, once saw a rep from a very reputable company spray a whole hull....funny to watch them washing the mould for the next few days.....such is life here.

    Putty Gun....looks like that is lost somehow.

    It is a gun with a pot that screws on underneath, there is no air bleed in the pot, so the pot is pressurised. Only used in small jobs of course.
    They certainly do work well.
