    How to use and remove JB Weld


    Since it's the staple tool of the Seadoo I figured I'd give some tips to anyone new to the tool.

    When you are kneeding the JB Weld wet the tips of your fingers or use some good ol spit. This helps get it uniform during the mixing. Be sure you mix it real good because if the 2 materials don't mix these spots won't harden and it will weaken your hold. If the JB Weld gets tachy and starts sticking to your fingers while you are putting on the JB Weld then wet your fingers. Water is your friend with JB Weld

    After the JB Weld is in place and starts to harden wet your fingers again and rub the JB Weld this will smooth out the ridges. The wetter the surface of the JB Weld the better you can smooth it.

    After it hardens paint it with the color matched paint to make it look better. I use the epoxy type paint.

    Removing JB Weld

    Option 1
    If it's a piece of metal or something that won't burn you can place it in the oven on 500 and let it sit for 15 minutes. Place the object ontop of a pan. Be very cautious when doing this and stay close to the oven. The JB Weld won't ignite but make sure the object has nothing flammable.
    After the 15 minutes remove the item with tongs and place on a cutting board or something that can't burn. Using a chisel it will come off like butter.

    Option 2
    Use a solder gun or solder stick. They are about 20 dollars at home depot/lowes. Use the chisel attachment and let it get real hot then press it to the JB Weld. It will cut through it like butter.


    Aquamend is a good substitue for JB Weld. You can get it at home depot/lowes and it cures an off white which matches the inside of the hull. It also doesn't contain the steel type material JB Weld has so it's a bit easier to remove. Its actually geared toward fiberglass and pools but If strength is a concern always go with the JB Weld though.

    I'm sure this will get all sorts of flames but I'm sure it's going to help someone.

    I was being sarcastic, notice the rolled eyes.

    JB Weld is needed for the bilge install, rideplate holes, knife edging the transom, hull mountings(wire hooks, IC mount rings, catch can mounting), skeg attachment.

    It is a core tool whether it's glue or not. If not applied correctly can cause you big problems.

    Kinchyle, does JB Weld float. I was thinking you might be able to fabricate yourself a vest with the stuff.
