Default Fiberglass resin with microfibers to bond

I need to bond a deck to hull. I think fiberglass resin will set up too fast and not give me enough time to work. Is there another product that will allow me the time and still allow for a good bond for fiberglass deck to fiberglass hull? The deck has to be positioned after gluing with fiberglass resin and taped. This is a 36 inch deck with an overhang that needs spacing and taping. I have heard West Systems 105 epoxy and 205 hardener may work better. Need input. Thanks Ron

If your just bonding then a structural adhesive should work great, something like 3M-1838 will give you a great deal of working time.

RS Hughes carries it, but it is a popular product and I am sure if you google it, you will find many sources to purchase it.
