“I have been using WEST SYSTEM products since 1990 and love it, so I am more than happy to push the product when people ask." One of Andrew's recent builds is Stormy Weather, the first East Coast 32 designed by renowned naval architect Andy Dovell. A blend WEST SYSTEM epoxy and 413 Microfibre Blend were used for all structural bonding installations and fairing was completed with WEST SYSTEM 410 Microlight.
“I’m really happy to recommend WEST SYSTEM products because of my personal faith in their performance and quality, based on my own use since first purchasing a 24 ltr kit back in about 1980. In addition, I think that the WEST SYSTEM documentation is the best available, and I push its use regularly.
“Since you ran ATL ads featuring Masquerade a few years ago, we have continued to improve our racing performance. We won the Launceston to Hobart yacht race. We added an asymmetric kite to our wardrobe plus a couple of new headsails which have made a difference, plus after several years we know the boat well and are sailing faster. We also took Masquerade to Victoria at the end of January and raced in the Festival of Sails regatta (Geelong Race Week). We raced in Performance Series Division 1 and finished 6th overall AMS and 5th overall EHC. The journey across Bass Strait and return tested the boat well and she handled it no problem (including hitting 18.3 knots with only a double reefed main!). We have really tested your products with our offshore sailing including several hard slogs to windward and can happily say that the hull is as sound as the day it was launched.
