If I understand the manual correctly (chesapeake 17), you're supposed to glass the hull and get all the coats of epoxy on (proper thickness and sanded smooth) before you move to installing the deck and applying the lighter glass. Then you have to feather in the overhanging sides of the top glass on the sides and apply more epxoy until its all smooth again. So why not hold off adding all the additional coats to the hull (or at least the sides) until the top deck is glassed and do it then?
