I have an unfortunate little dent in the side of my 17LT which resulted from a misalignment between bottom and side panels when I applied the fillet. I tried to wire the hull together with the corners of the panels tight to each other, so that there is no visible gap between them on the inside of the boat but the two panel edges show evenl on the outside of the boat. Did pretty well except for one notable spot.
I was considering trying to soften the epoxy by heating it. I have a radiant paint melter that has two high intensity quartz tubes that get red hot - built from an infrared space heater. This will heat many coats of paint and allow it to be easily scraped off, so I know that the heat will penetrate. I thought If I showed enough patience in heating it up, I could soften the epoxy enough to allow realignment of the panels. I only need to move onepanel edge over about 1/8".
Does anyone have any experience with heat- softening epoxy?
