Re: Graphite epoxy for hu

Jeff -- I used the "wide" blue masking tape with no problems. The graphite/epoxy is not as thin as straight epoxy so you won't have a problem. Plan on re-masking after each coat and be sure to remove it within 1-2 hrs or you may never get it off. I did the the graphite/epoxy before I varnished the boat as I didn't want to take a chance with any tape residue on the varnish. Sand between coats, but lightly until you have the 3rd coat down, and watch the corners or you will be adding another 3 coats on these. The graphite/epoxy hull will be a lot easier to maintain than a all varnished boat.
