Just curious have you given much thought on what type of resin you want to use Poly , Vinyl , or epoxy because your choice of resin depends on what fabric to use .
I was hoping you would respond. I really value your opinions
I dont have a clue what to use at this point. I have done a little glass work
on cars back in the day. I thought this would be a easy fix over the winter
so any direction from you would really help
This is just a suggestion but i would go with Epoxy considering it will have a longer pot life , which means more work time , with less waste ,and no stank , which is a god send in itself . Eddie , i have to say that using Epoxy will cost a little more in the long run put well worth the X-tra money spent and might i recommend going with # 635 which is sold by us composites or www.uscomposites.com which can and offers the best bang for your buck. ( price )

can you use epoxy over fiberglass
I wasn't planning on removing all the glass off the stringers
Yes you can but you must take note that when you start using Epoxy you can never go back to Vinyl or Poly ( Ester's ) because they are not compatiable with each other ( Epoxy) , in short Epoxy will adhere to Poly, or Vinyl , just not the other way around .
Eddie , in your pics of the flooring the ply looks a little blackish in a few areas , and is there any delamination or soft spots in the ply ?

I'm not sure
It is at a friends that is helping me with it
he has been sanding on it and I haven't seen it in person yet
I'm going down there today and see what it looks like. he told me last
night that one of the stringers was a little loose at the transom.
I will update you on what I find out
well I finally went over to my friends to see what the floor looked like with the glass off of it
not to good got some wet spots in the floor & one stinger I checked was delaminated in the back by
the transom. I guess the next step is to get busy getting things toogether.
the stringers in my boat are attached to the floor. when L put new stringers back in it should I
put them back the same way or should I put them in first and then put the floor in last???
Eddie , not to sound rude but i would hope you would try to put the stringers in first considering you will need all the space you can get to laminate the stringers to the hull and then proceed with the floor after everything is done or should i say everything that needs to be repaired after the floor is removed , and yes i would put the floor in last . Just a suggestion !
