Thought I would update.....

Should be done tomorrow.

For reference there is west systems six10 structural epoxy under the base following a coat of west system 105 as primer on deck and pod (remember not to put epoxy where you will be using poly resin or flowcoat). Once cured it was followed up with 4 layers of 900g chopped strand tabbed in.
