Thanks Jared. I'm off 167th. We have spoke before when you were welding your tank. I am trying as hard as I can to take advantage of this weather. Plus, There is no way it would have been possible to epoxy the core and glass layers outside in the summer. It would kick before i finished rolling epoxy on layer one.
Also glad to see you have been enjoying yours.

Pulled the stringers out today. They were so delaminated, only took about 5 min with minor cutting. So glad I decided to rebuild as a grid like wgscott.

Hope all kept their sanity during this COVID situation. I have been plugging away at odds and ends. Picked up a lil side project, trying to get family on the water this summer as camp is cancelled. So my 23 is on hold. However, I do have a question.

When I core the console, My plan is to use ARJAY bedding compound to bed the core, can I coat the glass and core material first with epoxy or do I need to get some poly resin?
Core is going to be coosa.

One more question for the group. I picked up poly resin. With that said I'm a lil confused with the layup. Thinking:
Roll poly neat on core and inside console and add layer of 3/4 oz chop to both, let it set up overnight, then trowel arjay bedding compound with 1/4" and squeeze till set.

Does this sound right? This is my first go with Poly.
