So, this must be a common problem but I ask anyway...
I am building a NE Dory and started epoxying the bulkheads yesterday morning. I have worked with West Marine Epoxy before and I THOUGHT I mixed the ingredients sufficiently. I spent at least a minute mixing each small batch.
This morning (almost a full 24 hours later) there seems to be some uneven curing of the epoxy. I used very small batches and even checked to see if the containers I mixed in had cured...they gelled and that's all.
If it were totally uncured I would just scrape and try again but all three peices seem to be pretty bonded together. What should I do? If it is a case of poor mixing, will it cure over time or do I need to figure a way to start again?
I'm trying to think of a positive spin for this little hiccup...So far I've come up with "at least you screwed up at the very beginning instead of halfway through." Can anyone do better?
