minaret hit the nail on the head with the open cell foams besides they expand WAY too much for anything other than big areas.

my default plan is to sure
Colloidal Silica & 105/slow 205 @ .75: 1 for the self leveling and the 1.5:1 for the 2nd application where more shaping is required.


Go to the 209(Tropical) hardener for thicker pours. Look out for blush if you do multiple pours.

Re: pourable filler

i have never worked with 209. i am guessing it is the same ratios and application...

any considerations to keep in mind?

Don't remember off the top of my head whether its 5:1 or 3:1. Just follow the instructions on the can of hardener. I'd use all 407 for this, or use 610. 610 would be the best WEST product, more flexible, less likely to crack due to differing flex ratio from the hull. Not self leveling, but fairly easy to shape.
