Re: [AtkinBoats] fiberglass and epoxy
- I haven't priced Duckworks epoxy, but www.jgreer.com has a good product, Aeromarine Epoxy, about $50/5 qt kit. Smells good too. I have used about all of the epoxy products, including Raka. Never had a problem with any of them. Right now I am into the Aeromarine stuff. It is foolproof and has no curing problems. If you talk nice to them they will through in the pumps.

My few words of epoxy wisdom.
Understand what type of epoxy you need. You may want
use a longer cure time to get more working time.
The epoxy pumps are sort of a waste for exact
measuring. They tend to spit. So you end up having to
Buy some of the plastic scrapers. You need them for
working the epoxy.
Buy the fibreglass tape instead of trying to cut
fabric into strips. The enges will unravel and drive
you crazy. It you do cut strips cut at a 45 degree
angle to the weave as this dimishes the unravel.
Buy a bunch of disposable gloves. It you buy latex
gloves the kids will find them and make them into

- I heard from Robb the other day:
" I am fixing to have to go into the hospital on Tuesday morning and
when (If?) I get the hell out of there, I am going, dammit, to the
coast and ain't coming back until I get good and dadblamed ready so
email will be spotty at best. "
I never met Robb, but through his writings, and profound wisdom about
all things on the water, he became important in my life... I will miss
