Hull Coating

Postby joewis » Sun Jun 26, 2016 9:28 am

First time boat builder, and I am in the process of epoxy coating the hull on my Glen-L 14' sailboat. I installed the fiberglass cloth and have applied 4 total coat of epoxy. My question is that the cloth fiber should be covered by now or has it taken other several more coats? I use West System epoxy and have been appling it with a roller and tipping it out. You're experiences would be helpful.

You have plenty of epoxy. Two fill coats are usually plenty. Just start sanding until you get a uniform grey.
