Here the epoxy is being spread out evenly over the surface of the hull. It was left to dry for 3 hours then it got another coat and after another 3 hours it got a third and final coat. The next photo shows the rough but glossy finish of the epoxy after it had dried for 2 days. And now it's time for MORE SANDING! It seems that there's more sanding in the construction of a canoe than any other stage. Ha ha oh well, it's all part of it.
