I agree with mili on the tex, it really shouldn't be used anywhere on a Hobie.
Don't use epoxy either. You'll just be wasting $$ and creating problems down the line.
Use polyester. Repair glass with polyester resin and glass. Fair hull with Formula 27 polyester putty. Coat repaired area with polyester gel coat.
Hope that helps.
Jeremy (et al),
I know that polyester material recommended by all those in the know. What happens when epoxy is used? I've searched in the forum here, but only seen warnings against using it, not the results. My last (professionally done) bottom job blew out pretty spectacularly last week and I'm getting advice from guys on the beach who swear by a surfers sun curing repair kit. I'm pretty sure that stuff is epoxy. They say they've used it for years with great results.
