Glassing the outside of a wood duck

Should i glass and epoxy three coats on the hull before moving to the deck, or does it make sense to do the glass and first coat of epoxy for the hull and deck before going onto the subsequent coats of epoxy??

Glass and 3 coats of epoxy for the hull now.

I just put on the 1 coat and didn't worry about filling the weave until the boat was structurally complete.

Guess it works both ways.

If you don't fill the weave make sure you are using non blushing epoxy as susequent coats may not chemically bond as well, you can't sand the first coat if the weave is showing I think.
