I have made a wooden strip canoe that I fiberglassed and epoxied on the outside and just epoxy on the inside. Turned out beautiful. I have now started making a 16' skiff, which is made out of plywood and encased in epoxy. I am no expert, but it isn't that hard to work with.
First rule is ventilation, cann't have enough. Second rule, it cover everything you don't want epoxy on, including yourself. I wear an apron, gloved, these sleeve things to protect my arms and glasses. Thrid rule, have everything ready and do a test run. Once you start mixing, there is no going back. If something is wrong, you have to throw the pot out, and it's expensive. I get my stuff from WWW.RAMA.COM
, good prices and good product. The best is the West System, but it's darn near twice as expensive.
The best site to learn from is WWW.duckboats.net
, by the way this is the boat I am now building.
Good luck and keep us posted.
There is room for all of God's creatures, right next to the potatos and gravy.
