“If you’re going to buy boating stuff this is the place to get it. I’m building a Mill creek kayak from a kit I picked up second hand. Pete gave me a lot of excellent practical advice which, when followed, worked out very well.
Can’t wait to get this boat on the water. A bit to do yet though. Thanks Pete, us learners need all the guidance we can get.”
“I have used MAS epoxy extensively and always been given good advice on its use over a period of at least 5 years with no problems. The project is a Chateau restoration near Toulouse in South West France. Both stone and timber repairs of some complexity have been completed without a single bonding failure. I have also made repairs to a Laurent Giles yacht again with complete success. Thanks for your help to date Stephen West”
“Black Bear have supplied us recently with MAS epoxy resins for laminating up a 40' mast and also the wonderful Biosolv thinner/solvent substitute. The MAS has been our first big lamination with epoxy resin, and thanks to BBB&L we have had an easy ride with great service as well as long-suffering help on the phone or late-in-the-day orders. MAS is great stuff to use, being simpler to mix than most and hardly made an impression on my itch-prone skin which is a big relief. The Biosolv is amazing stuff. As far as I can make out it can be used as a thinner/solvent for anything, but with no headaches, nausea or skin itches which are my usual lot. Having said that we always wear gloves and I use a carbon filter respirator, but even the smallest inhallation or splash on skin would normally have me itching. Not with MAS Epoxy or Biosolv.! Thanks, BBB&L! Pol at Black Dog Timber”
