Re: Panga 20 Build

I have a question about using epoxy on fiberglass. When I built a paddleboard, I used cloth and filled the weave with multiple coats. Am I supposed to fill the weave with multiple coats of epoxy with the 12 oz biaxial cloth? If I only have to place one coat of epoxy on the hull, won't the sander ea...
