Thanks Nole...I used both kinds of rollers. Its probably the weather...the stuff wont lay down and flatten out to any degree...maybe cheap epoxy or too old...I've had it for two years...sanded down to first coat and it looks OK...I'm just going to put three coats of varnish on it and let it go at that. anyway the wood has been wetted down with epoxy nd that's better than nothing. They did not have epoxy in the days of the clippers.

Not sure of the brand you are using but old epoxy has never been a problem for me. When I built my dory over half of the epoxy was system 3 that was well over 20 years old.

I like my epoxy at 85 degrees before applying - if using as a "varnish".

I get much better flow and thinner coats.
