Nobody seems to listen to me. I don't pre-coat the wood. I glass the dry topsides with 6 oz. Yes dry glass on dry wood. I use a brush. I put on 2, yes TWO filler coats as soon as I can. Actually, I may do the bottom while I do fill coats on the topsides.
Two fill coats are enough to sand smooth. If you do see glass then you can do another coat of resin. More than 2 and you're just wasting resin.
I do transom, topsides and then bottom. The seams lap like the water flow. My canoe and runabout are finished bright. The only real key is good light! You must get full saturation on the 1st coat.
Sorry, people make this much harder than it needs to be.
