  10. It doesn't look like I have a full bucket of Seacast™. The bucket only appears to be half or three quarters full. Also, it appeared to be foamy on top when I opened it. What is up?


  1. Can I use epoxy or silicone with Seacast™?


    ABSOLUTELY NOT! Seacast™ has been formulated to be used only with Polyester or Vinylester resins.

  2. Do I have to remove all the wood?


    Yes. Seacast™ is formulated to bond to fiberglass. It will bond to small amounts of pre-existing wood that may remain after extraction, but the bond to fiberglass will be weakened and the remaining wood will continue to rot.

  3. Do I have to have an inner skin and cap on my transom when I am using Seacast™?


    Yes. Seacast's™ strength is dependent on being sandwiched in fiberglass skin. It is a core material.

  4. Can I drill through Seacast™?


    Yes, It's drill and tappable.

  5. Can I put metal reinforcements inside before I pour Seacast™ for added strength?


    No. With Seacast's™ strength, you will not need reinforcement. Any type of steel or aluminum will expand and contract with temperature changes and affect the integrity of the transom.

  6. Can I pour more Seacast™ if I run out and need to reorder?


    Yes. The additional pours will bond as if done in one pour. Additional pours of Seacast™ will not produce a cold seam and will be just as strong as if it was poured at the same time.

  7. Can I use the West System with Seacast™?


    No. Seacast™ is not compatible with oily substances or epoxy.

  8. Can I use any hardener?


    No. Seacast™ comes with it's own hardener.

  9. Do I have to fix cracks and holes before I pour Seacast™?


    Yes. Seacast™ will leak thru any openings in your fiberglass. You can use duct tape (criss-cross) to cover small holes. After Seacast™ sets you have to ensure that the Seacast™ is flush with the inner side of the skin.

  10. It doesn't look like I have a full bucket of Seacast™. The bucket only appears to be half or three quarters full. Also, it appeared to be foamy on top when I opened it. What is up?


    Seacast™ separates during shipping - this is normal. When you add the catalyst and fiber to the bucket, you will have a full bucket.
