Re: No drips on sides?

I'd advise against that partial wetout procedure. The solidified resin will fix the unwetted edge in the position that it was left in; i.e. you may be left with a ridge, or more air pockets caused by partially wetted glass that in stage 2 and 3 will be too rigid to lay flat. Before doing any glass work, sand area smooth as glass dosn't like hard corners, vacuum out the dust/dirt, apply fillets. I'd start with the bottom and up one side then other side, check for dribbles and deal with them as you go by brushing them up. "Work clean!" Check out "Tips For Boatbuilding" and look under "epoxy and fiberglass" on this website.
