Forgive my ignorance. I used poxy grip on all the building joints or mating areas. I have poxy shield to encapsulate the hull. Do I need to thicken the poxy shield when putting on the cloth? Do I need to encapsulate prior to laying the cloth on?

Poxy Shield should not be thickened when using as a sealer or fiberglassing. A seal coat prior to fiberglassing is a good idea to prevent the wood from sucking up the resin during the initial wetout to prevent starving of the cloth, which causes dry spots. Apply a seal coat and lay the cloth down on it while the resin is in the "green stage". This occurs after a few hours when the resin is slightly tacky and not fluid. Should be done within 24 hours.

I put the sealcoat on in the early morning and lay up the cloth in the late afternoon.
