does the hull need to be completely glassed in one session?

Subject says it all.  My back is killing me and I have done the bottom and one side.

RE: does the hull need to be completely glassed in one session?

You need to do the outside all at one time, and the inside all at one time or you are going to have visable glass showing at the cold joints.

My question is why is your back hurting?  Maybe you need to raise your work platform so you are not bending over.

Granted I am on my 5th yak, but it doesn't take me but about 20 minutes to glass a hull or a deck, so if you back hurts doing this, then varnishing is going to kill you.  Need to figure out what is causing the pain.

I have lower back issues.  My yak is on saw horses and I've been working on it for 4hrs.  I am only making about 4oz of epoxy at a time. 

I could see the second coat going on in a few minutes, but the first one has been very slow.
