SilverTip QuikFair
QuikFair is a lightweight, microballoon-filled, fast-curing two-part epoxy fairing putty with excellent moisture resistance. The two color-coded parts have a non-sagging, butter-like consistency and are easily mixed to form a third color. At 70°F. QuikFair is sufficiently cure to be hand-sanded in 3 hours or machine sanded in 4 hours. This allows the user to apply three coats each 24 hours in a standard eight-hour shift or six in a round the clock basis.

Recommended Uses:
Use QuikFair on both fiberglass and wood-epoxy boats above or below the waterline.

Available Color:
Resin (part A): White
Hardener (part B): Brown
Mixed Color: Tan

I worked away on the top and bottom selvage bumps with the scraper and made good progress. That was the ticket for this job! I shaved everything down fairly level and then decided to try out the Silvertip fairing compound. I can see why people buy this stuff instead of mixing up their own fairing compound. It was smooth and easy to use. I can't wait for morning to see how well it hid all my mistakes!

Chuck: I recently received the System Three QuickFair from you, which allowed progress on the micro Auray punt. It's nice stuff; easy to mix, goes on smooth, and sands nicely. The little boat is planned for a young grand niece so that she can learn to row. I started with plans from Hannu's Boatyard (, which resulted in a boat 7'-3" by 40" to the outside of the rail. I tried to make it look a bit salty by adding some curve to the tops of the transoms and some quarter knees and bow knees out of plywood.

The two pictures show the punt and oars. All it needs is a little sanding and paint. Painting will be completed by grand niece and her grandma (my sister) in colors of their choice. I'm eager to see how that works out. The oars are whittled out of pine and are 5.5 feet long. Note the Duckworks clamp-on rowlocks. These are easier for a beginning rower.

Fair winds, Andy
