Back to the grind

Back to school now. We got another coat of epoxy on the hull last night using a new method that we found to work very well. We rolled the coat of epoxy on the hull with foam rollers and then "tipped" the bubbles that were left on the surface with a foam brush. This leaves a very smooth finish but also a thin coat. Dad was planning to add a second thin coat this morning. Then sand, primer, paint...i hope.

We have been using these SHUR-LINE 4" foam rollers and they work pretty well. They fall apart after a while but they are cheap and you can get them at Lowes. We will use this same roll-tip method for applying the primer and top coat.
