RE: fiberglassing???

The Mill Creek 16.5 kit should come with 1.5 gallon resin, 0.75 gallon slow hardner (MAS Economy Kit #2).  This is a total of 2.25 gallons of mixed epoxy. That should be enough to do your Mill Creek.  I am interested to know if you only have 1 Gallon of epoxy for your boat. If that is the case it will not be enough.   

RE: fiberglassing???

If you are careful mixing and make small batches to avoid waste, make small fillets, add micro-ballons for end pours and roll on your coats of epoxy to fill the fiberglass, you may be able to do it with 1.5 gallons of resin. I have used just over 1.5 gallons but I added 4oz glass to the inside of my MC 16.5 instead of taping the seams and installed graphite rubstrips. I have also built and added some other custom items for fishing which used up some of the epoxy.
