I used some thickened epoxy to fill in some gaps and low spots (e.g. where a few strips joined the perimeter strips a bit lower than the perimeter strips, just a bit to create a smooth flow in the deck. I sanded it all so that it's all comfortable to the hand (my scientic method of testing) and then placed the glass and epoxy. The thickened epoxy shows through as cloudy spots on the strips. I know it's too late to do anything about it, but wonder what I shoud have done. Used only unthickened epoxy? That would not have worked for my leveling and smoothing needs and some of the gaps (shame on me) would have been difficult to fill properly. Any of you veterans have some wisdom for my next boat?
