The theory looks nice, but, there are very few places on a boat that are level enough that the resin would not slosh out of the reservoir and the application could become very uneven. Plain old rollers and a pan are more easily controlled. JMHO

Thanks Roberta and chugalug.
Pretty well confirmed my suspicions. I'm contemplating a smaller version for some of my "need to do" projects at home... with ordinary wood glue. Truthfully, foam rollers are cheaper and disposable... and keep it simple.
all the best,
