Re: Epoxy: application problem
In Response To: Re: Epoxy: application problem ()

Unfortunately I still have to put fill coats on the outside of the deck. I was hoping to jst the interiors as practice so I didn't put all the fill coats on the exterior when I glassed it.

Even if I did, what do you do when you join the deck and hull?

Will a different brand epoxy play nice over MAS?

My solution to the interior so far has been a lot of sanding to smooth the surface. I think (hope) I have enough thickness to sand back smooth without getting into the weave again.

Once I get this figured out I still have to deal with the issue of the hull sides pulling in and the deck sides spreading out when they were taken off the forms. That's going to make joint the two tricky. It wouldn't be much fun if there weren't some challenge in it...
