Default RE: 72

Hey Cobus, no i lay 1 layer of matting in there first, wet it out with resin, when it is all soaked in i use a roller to make sure all the air bubbles are expelled then lay in the next layer of matting and roll it again, this time the resin works it's way thru, once that's done i then do a third layer and repeat the rolling, if it looks a little dry on the third layer i wet out the area's that need it but usually it doesn't require it. I try to strive for the perfect 70/30 mix of Matting to resin ratio.
It may not be the best way but it works for me, afterall i have had no real guidance from any boat builders as they all seem to think Fiberglassing is a Secret and don't want to share their ways.
