Product looks interesting and easy to use, but a bit expensive. Has anyone used it?

I saw $25 for a tube. I would try it. Got some small hairline cracks on swim platform where prior owner hit dock.

I agree it is a bit pricey but if it works as shown it would be worth it to me. Flat rate shipping from Australia is $15; I presume that is for any number of tubes. My challenge is the off white color of my Mainship; I would be guessing as to what color to buy.

I’m considering it.

I ordered a tube of ChipFix. Price with shipping is 37.72 AUD. I don't know exactly how much thatr is in American dollars, but it is probably cheaper than the $55 I spent for a small jar of Sea Ray gel coat.

Definitely looks interesting. The Nanotech website shows the chipfix tube at $25. I have a spot I would love to try it on. Way cheaper than having the fiberglass I use come down to fix it.

I would love to get two (2) tubes, Chip Fix and Hairline Fix. I suspect that Chip Fix works fine, but I'm dying to see if the Hairline Fix product really works. I think it would have to have an elastic component to really work.

Dave - It's not necessary to "share a tube." I'll order it and when and if the weather warms up, I'll uncover my boat and try it (I only have one spot with a spider crack). If it works, I'll give you the rest of the tube. Based upon the weather, we will probably be trying it sometime in July, lol.

Just be greatful we are not on the Great Lakes. They may never thaw this summer!

I ordered this:
http://www.nanotechrepairs.com/duo-pack-special-free-mega-fusion/

It is hairline and gel coat repair with a free Megafusion. Exchange rate made it $45 usd and change but $30 shipping. I need "snow white" but if you need another color Hairline Repair is available on Amazon for $25 and shipping under $5 per tube. It appears they're just getting their Amazon store up and running.

There's also Captain Tolley's Creaping Crack Cure, which has been around for a while. Haven't used it but from those who have, they swear by it...

My order arrived yesterday (2.5 weeks after placing it). I'll be giving at least the hairline repair product a try as soon as weather permits. I did send the company an e-mail stating that while I'm looking forward to trying the products, the $30 USD shipping seemed to be a bit steep considering the mailing envelope arrive with just two $2.60 AUD stamps on it!

With any luck you can see before and after results this weekend. Winds are supposed to be gusting into the 30s so we'll be in the slip working on projects. We'll probably arrive around mid-day Saturday. Thankfully, winds will be out of the west so your boat will block me :-)

I'm anxious to hear your thoughts on the product as well - have a chance to carry it - can eliminate the huge shipping costs from Australia.

It was too cold this weekend to try the Hairline Crack product, but I touched up a chip in my cabin with the 9 Second Gel Coat Repair. I need a second application, but it seemed pretty decent and certainly better than the chip repair product sold here in the US. I actually just got off the phone with them. They said the $30 shipping was a mistake and they refunded $15 of that. They also said they had to shut down their Amazon store as the international aspect of it kept causing too many issues. I hope to try the rest of the products within the next week and I will report back with pictures and perhaps some better news on purchasing the products in N. America.

We finally had a warm enough weekend to try these products. First is the Hairline Crack Repair. NOTE: I took the before shot at a different time and with a different camera. The product isn't a miracle but it does work. Just please take the "after" shots with a grain of salt. Consider them what others will see when you're finished. You will still see the damaged area! :-)



And here's after application. Note: to the naked eye the cracks in the non-skid really improved. I the smooth area at the top of the picture the naked eye can still see the cracks, but this picture shows you what everybody but YOU will see :-)




And here's a gelcoat repair sample. Before:



And after (again, I can still see it with my eyes but it is much better):

I give it two thumbs up. I just didn't want people to see those pictures and expect miracles. It does repair cracks and chips quite well. Certainly better than anything else I've ever tried. They are working with US distributors now to get the product in-stock in N. America.

John's a much better photographer than I am. Perhaps sometime this week he and I can do a repair or two on his boat and he can better document it.

Seems a bit on the pricey side - especially when compared to gelcoat.

You're completely correct that this product is a heck of a lot more expensive than gelcoat. However, it's a heck of a lot easier to work with. Minimal prep work (just clean the area) and no sanding required. Plus, gelcoat is hard for me to fit in my refrigerator for storage :-)

I'm glad I tried it.

I guess they are trying to get this going.

I think you might be beat on the distributorship as they made a bunch of connections about a month ago including at least one major marine distributor as well as some US-based online retailers. Once they have inventory in hand your local marine supply store should be able to get it for you.

We just got the boat back to MD from FL and I was cleaning things up today. I noticed the hairline repair product seems to work better than the gelcoat chip repair. I think the latter needs a second coat or I may not have shaken it well enough. But I'm still overall pleased. The hairline cracks I had were my biggest concern and they look repaired.
