Wed H 61 L 35, Thur H 57 L32, FRI H 59 L 39 The garage is much warmer than the outside temps. Should be at least 70 in garage today.

Epoxies generally cure okay above 60F. Below 60F, I have had trouble.
My boat build is here -------->

My question is, if it dips below, does it stop curing. Will it start to cure again if it is 60 and above?

No, it does not stop but the curing process will slow as temps get cooler!!! Jeff

Ill check it when I get home from work. I forgot this morning. Its probably cured by now. It was above 60 for most of the night last night and my garage was warmer. When I was looking at the curing chart, I thought it was hours not minutes.

The epoxy cured. No problem.

I placed the transom a little earlier. I ran out of 2x4's so I had to temporarily brace the transom. I'll build something more substantial tomorrow. On my plywood cuts, does it matter if it's off a little. The transoms edges overlapped each other a little. I'm assuming this will be taken care of with either sanding or epoxy putty? I guess the stringers are next. I've been checking the cross dimensions and the dimensions between each frame. Everything is lining up. The stringers should go in no problem. The stringers will be cut with notches. I'll have to cut notches in the frames.

Glad to hear the epoxy set up like it should for you :D About the transom, sand off the parts that stick out too far. If it is a little short remember "gaps are good" This style of building is pretty forgiving of small errors.

Not only dropping temps but in high humidity the moisture will want to stick to everything. Increases risk of epoxy wanting to blush. I avoid epoxy work if temps will be in the low 60s in a 24 hour forecast.
