Roll, roll, roll your epoxy

Conditions came together today for the epoxy coating of more boat parts. This had to be postponed from yesterday, when I felt that weather conditions might lead to "outgassing", a condition where tiny air bubbles seep out of the wood and become stuck in the fresh epoxy, ruining the appearance. Also, yesterday was taken up with Christmas decorations around the house, and an office Christmas party. So today as many seat surfaces and bulkheads as I could fit on my work bench were given the first coat. Hopefully, I can get these and some other parts ready by Tuesday, when we expect some unusual cold. With daytimes highs expected to not get above freezing, it will be weather more suited to sanding than epoxy. Total hours 12.00.
