West System is the longest established epoxy resin system for boat building and is a favourite amongst professional boat builders and shipwrights.

Shipwrights prefer WEST System because it is always consistent and the mix always cures correctly.

When you are building a boat, you cannot afford to have areas with resin that has not cured consistently.
A partially cured epoxy has very poor strength and will create a weak point in the boat.

WEST provides a full technical system that covers all areas of timber boat building:
Gluing, laminating, filleting and fairing are all easily explained so you can use the system on your boat.

There are several small booklets as well as a comprehensive full boat construction book available.

The Wooden Boat Festival is a big promotion for WEST System.

The WEST head technical adviser Nick will be giving a talk with Laurence on Sunday the 12th of February at 2pm, in the PW1 Theatrette.

This will be a hands-on demonstration focussing on how to mix the resin & fillers, how to dynel sheathe, filling & fairing and how to prepare a rotted timber section of a boat for repairing.

So please do come along, have a comfortable seat and rest those weary feet that have been pounding the docks all morning – while learning about the shipwright’s favourite epoxy system.

We hope to see you there!

PS – WEST have given us the opportunity to pass on incredible savings at the Australian Wooden Boat Festival.
