    I am with Crystal River Boat Builders in Florida and we used a couple of small containers (8 or 10 0z.) of your two-part thickened epoxy “Gel Magic” on our latest boat, an 8-ft. rowing dinghy and were very pleased with ease of mixing and applying. I’d like to get some more but did not see it packaged the same on your website. One of our builders got the previous container thru an offer in Wooden Boat Magazine. Is it still available?
