What kind of resin should I use?

All our plans specify epoxy resin exclusively. <BR>Polyester or vinylester are not acceptable. <BR>Polyester does not bond properly to wood and is not sufficiently resistant to moisture. With polyester, water will find it´s way to the plywood and result in rot, not with epoxy. <BR>Use a quality marine epoxy like the one we sell in our kit: it does not cost more.<BR>
