Much sanding was to be had. I’ve discovered I rather spend time sanding and prepping wood than time sanding globby glass and rock-hard epoxy.
I’m nearing the end of the first 5 gallons of LV epoxy. I’m assuming that will be finished off after the final epoxy application inside the hull.
Use good sanders. Buy good sandpaper. Change it often. Vacuum up the dust as you go, preferably with a HEPA vac. The additional cost of good paper will offset wasted time sanding. It yields a better finish as well. Remember, good epoxy work yields less cleanup, less sanding, and better application of fiberglass.
I filled the second bag with the 4 gallon vac this evening. That’s a bit of dust being captured. Much more dust to come.
