I recently discovered some pretty significant delamination in one of my Hobie Cat 16 hulls. I have read the forums on how to repair the delamination. My question is what is actually the best product to do the repair with? I read a lot about West Marine systems epoxy products but have also read about something called git-rot. What do you recommend as the best products to use for hull delamination?

x2 on the git rot. Its MUCH thinner viscosity wise than any laminating or other resins I have seen. It can flow and wick its way into the voids very well.
