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.

I was skeptical the Kevlar would be small and/or it would be light on adhesive. Worked great, plenty material!! I would say to plan for it to stretch long rather than wide.

The skid plates weren't too difficult to install, but it helps to have two people! They seem to be wearing well and hopefully will help prevent future damage & leaks.

Got this kit for my royalex Mad River Explorer Canoe,1994 garage queen purchased in showroom condition. After a few uses decided it would be best to add the kit. After watching you tupe vidios and reading reviews about being short on resin, I made adjustments. I did not use a roller. I spread resin on aluminum foil for soaking kellar mat, and used a brush to tap and spread. Made full use of all resin with minimal waste and turned out great. Used Krylon paint for plastic after full cure. I am totally happy with results. Directions didn't mention a difference in matting top/bottom, found a youtube reference. Not sure how critcal that is other then texture or wear?

I followed the instructions in the kit and used some tips found on you tube videos. I wish there was a little more of the compound. It was barely enough, the foam roller absorbs some. If I could do it anyone could.
