Default getting something fiberglassed

I am replacing the casting decks on a bass boat and before i install the carpet, I need to have the plywood sprayed or painted with either fiberglass or epoxy resin.

Would it be cheaper to have someone do it, or go by the stuff in a gallon and do it my self. The only issue I have doing it my self, is it is cold outside and that stuff isnt good to be breathing, so i would have to wait till it was warmer out and pull the boat out of the garage

Thanks

Rich

If you need someone to do it, I know a guy who does it and is very reasonably priced. You can pm me if you end up wanting someone to do it for you.

do it yourself its stupid simple. I do it for a living. the only pricey part is getting the EPOXY. if you use anything else it will fail in short order and you will be back at square one. If you used thick enough plywood there should be no need for fiberglass. Buy some west system or the like and roll away. I would put on a few coats if it were me. sand between coats then over coat with the paint of your liking. sand with 80-120 grit between coats. your gonna need at least a gallon I bet with out knowing how big the deck is. its gonna have to be at least 50 degrees outside and the epoxy should be room temp before using (around 70) it will mix easier this way. your gonna be out over $100 in epoxy alone though so be warned... got any questions drop me a line I will see if i can help
