Shelf Life of Epoxy

Shine,

I had and used some E-Poxy that I have had for a while only to find out that it is much thicker and the glass did not absorb it well compared to the newer Marine Epoxy. Does the Epoxy have a shelf life? I used the same hardner in both.

Thanks

For anyone with the same misfortune. A propane torch and a little time solves the problem

Removing Cured Epoxy

Oops, I allowed epoxy to cure on my laminating roller. Any suggestions as to how to clean it up or is it now a throw away. What happened is when I layed it down it cured, therefore I have a nice buildup on the bottom which is flat.

Thanks

Been there done that. Make sure your welder doesn't is aware of the seals, they can be burned up from the heat

Go ahead and use MDF. Put blocks on for screws and seal as mentioned with some sort of oil based paint and you will be fine. As far as strength I have walked on the bottom of my boat with no problem. Happy building

For those of you who wish to build a boat with more flair you could always hire a naval architect to design one for you. I did some research on that option prior to starting my CS25.
