I'm replacing the center plywood over the gas tank. I want to resin that board and the rest of the floor in my Lib. The old floor seems like it has some resin on it already can I scuff sand that part and reapply resin to it? What Resin should I use...Epoxy or ? Thanks Dave

I'm not to well versed in this area either, but everything I've ever heard/read reccomends costing it in resin.


and the weather has been total crap I put my boat in two weeks ago and haven't been able to get anything done to it. It was either raining or about to rain.

Where are you in New York ??? I'm in Rochester

I use and recomend epoxy for everything but it is a little more costly and they make other resin's , such as vnyl , poly , and G P resin ( general purpose ) which is probably the cheapest out of all the resin's . I have to say that if you want and need the resin right now you could most likely get it at West marine, Bondo make's a polyester resin called boatyard resin and sell's around $38 dollars a gallon with hardner ( mek ) or epoxy West System for around $ 150. a gallon after you buy the hardner & mixing pump's . :cool:

I gave you a web site for epoxy which is west system , it might be helpful to just take a peek at . I once worked for GOUGEON BROTHER'S or West system in my teen's making wind mill blade's , there Epoxy is great stuff :)
