Thanks Chuck, I appreciate the suggestions. Do you (or anyone) have suggestions for the very tiny bubbles in the epoxy? I've been able to control the large bubbles that form as temperature rises, but can't get rid of the tiny nearly invisible ones. Tipping with a foam brush helps a lot. Maybe I need to pay attention to what Fla Mike once advised : "Perfect is the Enemy Of Good"I found the rollers at Home Depot and cut each in half which worked out really good when glassing the boats. One half of a roller for one batch of epoxy. Also found the foam brushes at Home Depot that I used for the final touch up. I could use one brush a couple of times before it got tossed.
Something that worked good with the rollers was a disposable plastic paint tray liner in the paint tray. Made cleaning the paint trays easy , just let the epoxy set up after the 2nd batch and pull it out of the tray.the next day. When some epoxy refused to leave then I started a new tray.
I found with the epoxy spread out in the deeper portion of the tray it did not set up as fast in the tray and gave me a little more working time.
Thanks for the reply,
