Deck Fiberglassed. 64 hours

The fiberglass cured quickly on the bottom so I was able to trim the excess, sand the seams and flip the kayak over to fiberglass the deck today.

By this evening the deck had cured enough to trim the overhanging excess fiberglass and the cockpit opening with a razor blade. I then sanded the edges and lightly scuffed the entire deck. I still had some time so I rolled on 2 coats of epoxy resin 2 hours apart to start filling the weave of the fabric. I think it will still need another coat to completely fill, then I will flip the hull over and fill the bottom fiberglass weave with resin coats. I'm getting close to running out of the supplied MAS epoxy, hopefully I have enough to fill the weave completely.
