Boaters Advised to Keep DIY Repair Kit Handy

Press Release
Sunday, June 02, 2013

J-B Weld's Do-It-Yourself watercraft repair kits feature leading epoxy adhesive sealing compounds.

Now that the boating season has officially begun, more than 40 million marine enthusiasts are gearing up for long days on the water, but it is estimated that tens of thousands of boats sink every year. With this in mind,  J-B Weld, a leader in consumer epoxy adhesives, offers DIY solutions for common watercraft repair. 

J-B Weld offers more than 15 different types of two-part epoxy products, each customized to bond to a specific surface including aluminum, SMC fiberglass, wood, plastic, glass, ceramic, carpet, and more. Watercraft users have relied on J-B Weld for mechanical boat repairs, bilge pumps, cracked seals, and even items inside a boat such as tool boxes, fishing rods, coolers and more. But most importantly, J-B Weld says it has even saved many boats from sinking.

"We hear from so many mariners this time of year who have experienced leaks while they were out on the water. They were grateful for having J-B Weld on hand to stop the leak and prevent the boat from sinking," said Chip Hanson , J-B Weld CEO. "Whether you're fixing up your boat in advance or just stocking up on boat supplies, I strongly suggest adding our wet products to your toolbox.  After all, our products will not only save you money but they may come to your rescue." 

J-B Weld, the leader of epoxy adhesive, is based in Sulphur Springs, Texas and has an office in Atlanta, Ga.
