Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Fiberglass Composition?

Hi David,
Amels, like most fiberglass boats, are made with polyester resin.
However, you should always use epoxy for repairs for superior bonding,
strength, and resistance to water intrusion. If you use polyester for
repairs to the layup, you may experience adhesion problems.
