Nitro...

Stay away from the Envirotex. Per the website...It is for indoor use and is not reccomended for outdoor use. A boat hull would be the worst enviroment for it. And don't forget in will come in contact with gasoline at some point. The fiberglass cloth takes out the imperfections of the wood planking and adds quite a bit of strength. It will not add that much weight. My battery packs alone weigh 7lbs. and the boat will still plane out. A real boat floor is a big diffference from this hull. Placing the boat upside down the fiberglass will lay on the hull. Pour the resin on and let it soak into the cloth. Use a plastic scraper in a downward motion and let the excess drip to the floor. When it dries get a case of beer and a lot of sandpaper and begin to sand. When the beer is gone and the sandpaper is shot... get more beer and keep sanding! A bit simplistic but it is not that bad.
