Ready for water?

Well, here is my Pram. Don't get excited, she looks somewhat better in the photo than up close in person.
The bottom & outsides really came out great. Three coats of epoxy with very little runs and next to no bubbles.
The inside is a different story. So far 5 coats inside, but I just can't get rid of the tiny bubbles. Using a foam roller and tipping out with a foam brush, only 1 cup of epoxy at a time. I usually build up three coats, then get mad and spend a few hours sanding it smooth with 220 grit. Wipe with denatured alcohol, and epoxy again the next day.
Regardless, I think it is OK to use the boat don't you think? A few hours in a sunlight with the kids for a couple weekends should not breakdown the epoxy before finishing should it?
TIA for all advice, would never made it this far without the wit and wisdom of this list!
