Hello,
When injecting Git Rot into the hull, do I have to first inject it deeper into the hull and then more shallow so that the Git Rot is in between both glass/foam joints or will the epoxy simply penetrate through the foam and join both layers of glass on either side to the foam no matter which depth I inject the epoxy into the hull?
Thanks
-Janek

Git Rot is pretty thin stuff. It should flow out between all the layers.
When I did my old 14 I pumped some in, took a break, mixed up a new batch and pumped some more in. Also when you start to see the git rot come up through the surrounding holes you can plug those off and force it in farther.

Thanks, that's great news. I was hoping i wouldn't have to somehow force it into the separate areas of delam.
