Now, a little more about core shots. As mentioned
above, the best method of repair is to take the ski to a shop
and get the core shot base welded. There is a home alternative
though that many folks have used with success. You clean the
ding as described above, then fill the hole with slow cure epoxy.
I have used a product from boat shops, called "Marine Tex",
with great success. As the epoxy cures it tends to shrink a bit,
which is perfect. While it has firmed up, but still a little
soft, take a razor blade or X-acto knife and carefully score
a grid pattern into the material. Let the epoxy cure over-night
and then fill the indentation with P-tex as described above.
The P-tex will bond nicely if you did a good job scoring the
grid pattern. Shop techs will dog me for sharing this shortcut,
a base weld really is the best way to go, but many of us have
performed this repair and achieved a long lasting repair. I have
had Marine-Tex repirs last for years, while only having to re-apply
the P-tex over-coat occasionally.
it seems like its gonna hold pretty well, has anyone ever used this method?
