I had the same problem when I coated a hull with resin that didn't have enough hardener.Put it in the sun or use a hair dryer-the heat will help greatly.[8D]

Sometimes applying more epoxy with a little extra hardener works as the hardener will leach into the first coat and cure it. You just have to work fast with a "hot" batch before it sets up.
