Peter, To tape or not to tape...not sure it's all that critical. But as for that nasty ridge at the edge of the tape after applying the epoxy, spend the cash on a carbide scrapper. It cuts through the glass like butter and lets you blend in the edge of the tape. I used a steel paint scraper on my first boat and had to resharpen again and again until there was nothing left to it. I'm now using the carbide scrapper on my second boat and it does a much better job with less effort and never needs sharpening.
