    I applied this kit to both ends of a 14' Old Town Camper (Royalex). The felts are generously sized, and covered the keel damage I needed to reinforce. The epoxy is just enough to saturate the felt, but barely - I found it easiest to pour epoxy down the middle of the felt, then work it in with a1 1/2" brush with very stiff bristles (you can cut the bristles shorter if needed to stiffen them up.) An old credit card or disposable plastic spatula helps smooth out air bubbles (there WILL be air bubbles) and force the edges smooth. If you mask the area, don't apply your tape too close to the dry felt - once it's wet and you start smoothing it, it tends to spread beyond the "dry" outline about 1/8" to 1/4". The epoxy had plenty of "open" time, so while I didn't dally, I didn't have to rush to get both felts applied and smoothed down before the epoxy started to set. In all, I'm very pleased with the kit and the results.

    Overall this is a great product. However, If it had about 1/3 more epoxy/hardener mixture, it would be absolutely perfect. The first felt soaked up the mixture and went on well. But, a lot of the mixture soaked into the cardboard, and there was not enough to completely soak the second felt. I knew I was in trouble when I had to use more than half the mixture on the first felt, but by then I was committed. If I were to do it again, I would use a material other than cardboard, one that did not absorb the mixture.

    Top Question & Answer
    Q: Is there enough material in this kit to do both ends of a canoe. I have an Old Town Penobscot 16 Royalex canoe. Thank you.
    A: Hi., Thank you for the question. This is going to depend on how much surface area you are trying to cover. The volume of the can is approximately 12 ounces. If you are in doubt you could certainly purchase 2. The kit does however include 2 felts.
