I glassed the hull of the C16 on Saturday, and am in the process of filling the weave. This seams like a silly question, but do you all use roller trays or simply pour the epoxy right on the boat and roll from there? I noticed in the video that John just pours and rolls, which (with all due respect) seems like it would be a recipe for runs and sags galore. I've been using a roller tray, and have been putting on veeery thin coats (I'm expecting 5 or 6 should do the trick)... no runs so far.
My other question is about adding more glass to the keel. I forgot to do this before I glassed the entire hull, and now have a full coat of epoxy over the glass. I know If I were to glass at this point, the resulting layer wouldn't be too strong because it would only be bonded to epoxy. Is the extra keel strip really necessary, or would I be fine without it? If so, should I sand a little in those areas and then apply it?
