I do that work all day and if you were near me in NJ I’d say bring it over and it will be finished in about an hour. I’d personally use it until the end of the season if your not racing, then repair it over the winter after watching a YouTube video or 2.
Thank you for the offer. I may reach out. I took some of the advice above and found out that I'm closer to an untrained monkey than a trained one. I used Marine-Tex and the leading edge looks good and just requires some sanding. What I did with the bottom may require a little more attention. Unfortunately, work is a little crazy right now and I haven't been able to finish the job. Thanks for all those that provided guidance.
I learned from an industry pro years ago that there are only a small handful of base resin producers. All the retailers of epoxy products buy from them and add their proprietary additive packages to tailor the products performance - fast cure, clarity, mix ratios etc. etc.Where I come from we don’t feel obliged to rush out and buy WEST stuff (it’s not always available anyway), I choose from a variety of epoxy manufacturer’s. And will generally attempt to buy from local manufacturers. I have bought some of their stuff and yet somehow still feel clean. The techniques espoused in their book are to be found from a variety of independent authors. They do a reasonable job of promoting epoxy. In the end it’s all about the preparation. I’m sure Purple Onion will be able to sort it out.
