    My 15ft Hiawatha will soon be ready for fiber glassing. The thought scares me a bit but I'm ready to take the plunge.

    Considering my experience,(or lack thereof), is there one brand of epoxy resin that is better than the other ???...MAS vs EAST vs WEST ?

    I think you'll find that every brand has its fans, as well as its detractors... but that's only a semi-educated guess...

    My own experience with MAS is that it smells terrible and very strong. It is a 2:1 ratio so that part is easy, expecially if not using pumps however i would recommend West or East. They both work equally well, however my preference would be West. The extra money is worth it.
