    It looks like he is just pre-coating the balsa first with resin, then once that tacks up he will be putting down the glass. Balsa sucks up plenty of resin, so pre-coat the balsa always first, let that soak in, then add more resin and glass. With epoxy this is easy, with poly resin, you don't get that much time so you need to work fast with poly or vinyl resin.

    Thanks,It was a long day.Took a while to get the drain fitting in place and pulled back to seal.Its hard to work that much 17oz mat at one time and keep it wet. but not to wet,get the air out,and and and.Now it's on to repairing the last cracked stringer. There will be be a splice right behind the seat box pics to follow.

    Removed the stringer section,and took the rest of the day off. Decided to cook off the epoxy,just to be sure it set properly.Will give it twenty four hours of good heat.Then back at it tomorrow.Click image for larger version.

    Another way other than heat for 24 hours is the way I do this, I think I finished my vking core about 5 years ago........ So she should be cured and good to have the floor put in soon!!!!

    Looks great Bob, I wish you did this 10 years ago so I could have used your techniques.

    Well the bright side, is the slower epoxy cures the stronger it is.So by now your Vking should be bullet proof!!!
