I've finished sanding the hull and deck of my Night Heron, and now I have a question about what to do next.
Should I put the coaming strips on the deck before I fiberglass the deck, or fiberglass the outside of the deck before putting on the coaming strips?
Nick's book, "Strip-Built Sea Kayak" says to put the coaming strips on first, but I swear I've seen him fiberglass the outside of the deck before putting on the coaming strips?
Just thought I'd ask which way would be easier from those who have done this before.
Thanks in advance,
P.S., If I do fiberglass the deck first I plan on putting on a sealer coat before the glass, and how many coats of epoxy after the glass if I do them at 4 hour intervals in one night (don't want to sand between coats)?
