Hi, I am new on the forum. I started a shearwater merganser 17 about 5 years ago and after completed the hull and deck I lost my building space and got distracted by bicycles.
This week, I unpacked my supplies vowing to finish my Kayak. The deck is on and the glass was laid and filled 4 years ago. There are some parts on the hull that can use a little more fill. So there is almost an entire gallon of CLC epoxy and 1/2 gallon of hardener left from 4 years ago. The hardener has turned a beautiful amber :) I tested the pumps and mixed a dixie cup full, and after 2 hrs, the stuff was still pourable, after 5 hrs, it has gotten hard. I also tried a test w some glass onto a cardboard box, and after 5 hrs, the surface is still very tacky.
So is the 4 year old CLC epoxy any good, and can I salvage any of it? I remember either the MAS guy telling me 5 years ago that the only thing that really goes bad is the hardener and that heat will cure all. So is the resin good and all I need to buy is some fresh CLC hardner? If not, then anyone who is doing an end pour, please contact me, I have just the stuff for you :P
Note: this was the kayak that was built on the 9th floor apt.
