I guess I need to explain the deal with the epoxy. When I started down this dark road polyester was less than 20.00 a gallon. Epoxy was over a hundred a gallon,now US composites has a three gallon kit for 120.00 epoxy, now polyester is 37.00 a gallon thats not but 3.00 a gallon difference,I am going to build one boat and see how I like it.
Ron
I think the only problem will be waiting for the stuff to dry.
Bet I cant build this boat in 15 days like I did the Cuda.

I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I would be happy to have the time to finish one in 15 weeks. :lol: With the Young 'uns, my building time is limited to 9 pm - 11 pm during the week and on weekends I may get a three to 5 hour block. Those are the "wet out" days when I epoxy a large item like the hull. I envy your ability to build so fast.

Maybe you should build a stripper during the time you are waiting for the epoxy to cure on the W T-V :wink:

That is one thing good about being semi retired. more time for playing.
I do know what you mean a 60 hour week used to be normal for me.
Ron
