I am getting ready to start the fiberglass and epoxy on my cedar strip canoe. I have been reading every article and watching every video I can find since this will be my first attempt at fiberglass and epoxy. Since I got the plans from Northwest Canoe company, I chose to order the glass and epoxy from them. I will be using 6oz cloth and MAS epoxy with slow hardener. I plan on doing a seal coat first before wetting the fiberglass. Now for the question.... After wetting the glass doing the fill coats I may need to scuff the surface depending on the timing. However I am thinking that the fiberglass has depressions (between the weave) that won't be touched by the scuffing. Has this issue been addressed or does the bond on the scuffed high spots make up for not scuffing the spaces between the weave of the cloth? I've put so much work in on my first build, I am trying to eliminate any possible problems. Thanks for any insights from your own personal experience.
