    It looks like you dressed it in shiny lycra like they use for cycling shorts…..

    Sqeegee on the dry cloth works well for this. The thing is that you will need a lot of resin and it’s difficult to mix it and spread it at the same time, you also have time issues: you have to be relatively quick. The ideal configuration would be to have two guys spreading and one mixing. In this case, you could do one hull in less than two hours.

    Good luck

    PS: I am in BIG trouble with allergies.

    Neil, get a whole bunch of containers and pre-measure the correct amounts of Part A and B but don’t mix them. Then once you get going you can mix as you need without having to measure as you go. This will speed the process up so you can relax. It’s actually a fun process. I did the process dry. But I made sure the fabric was smooth before I started. Hang clamps along the bottom the tighten the cloth into place. Good luck. If I was closer I’d be right over to help. Give yourself plenty of time and don’;t start late at night! Thomas

    That’s the point in the proces where I wish I had reasoned more and understood the need for a measuring pump instead of waiting for half of the hulls to be completed before . I estimated that I wasted about 10 to 15% of my building time mixing and measuring epoxy. That’s a whopping 400 – 600 hours!
    Here’s my other little spiel about this subject, if you haven’t seen it already:

    Making a test piece to establish a proces is also always a good idea.
    The nice thing about it is that once you have started the different materials will literally pull you through until you have one side of the first hull done.
