Boaters across the globe have trusted Boatlife products to maintain their boats for more than 50 years, but the company’s time-tested products have also made a name for themselves in other areas that most people don’t know about. For example, when it came time to repair a wood rot problem at the White House, the construction decision-makers chose Git-Rot to repair and maintain this national treasure!
And,companies cleaning up the Exxon Valdez oil spill turned to our Bilge Cleaner to safely remove oil from the Alaskan rocks, beaches and birds! This same product may prove to be a tremendous help with the BP oil spill. "We constantly hear about new uses people find for our products on their own,"says Boatlife CEO Louise Schmidt. "For example, my Dad created Git-Rot to restore and maintain beautiful wooden boats, and we never dreamed builders would consider it a trusted product for some of the nation’s greatest homes and treasures like the White House and Hearst Mansion." Git-Rot is a two part liquid epoxy that saturates and restores the original strength to wood by penetrating the rot. It actually works with the loose rotted fibers and creates an incredibly powerful end product. To use Git-ot the affected wood must be dry. You simply inject the product into the wood and it soaks by capillary action and cures overnight. Once the curing process is complete, the your wood is once again sandable and paintable, can be drilled and screwed. Git-Rot is available through BoatLIFE online and through most companies that carry marine maintenance products. For more information contact Boatlife at www.boatlife.com or 843-566-1225.
