    Has anyone used this for a transom repair or in a new build?

    Very interesting! Looks like seacast only lighter? The way that guy handled the pieces he had made them look lightweight. Seacast is on the heavy side

    isnt your boat made from pouring chemicals into something?

    or are you a wooden boat guy?

    Wooden boats forever!

    Let's be more specific...pouring stuff in 32 years after my boat was built and getting a homogenous structural bond to the existing substrates such that it would be as strong - or stronger - than the original construction.

    and...I went thicker and heavier when I rebuilt mine so it's actually stronger than it was when it was new

    ...mostly used to replace a rotted transom. not on a new build. works o.k. when there's no other choice. here in the states its been available for a long time from various venders, under various brand names. originally developed for the hot tub/spa manufacturing business in a less dense sprayable form to build bulk & with speed, decades ago. a company called spraycore introduced it to new boat manufactures, such as dakota yachts, and others, as a fast hull buildup material during production. then, about 20 years ago or so, salesman started pushing it as rotted transom replacement material for outboard fishboats, etc...
