Chose to do my seam a little different. Rather than wetting it out in a box I cut to full length, rolled it up and rolled it out a little at a time as I wet it out in the boat. Let set for about one hour between layers. Worked great. Made a great wet on wet seam with no joints.

I agree ... that looks a lot easier than the piece-by-piece in-a-box method.  And you can't argue with the results .... very professional :)

I think I need to make some friends. What a pain in the ass doing this alone.

Sorry .... I had to laugh at the PITA remark :D

I did it alone too ... only no tractor.  Just block-n-tackles ... no chain hoist, no friends (my mug scares them away unless they have the beer before helping out :D )

Todd,Eat your wheatis . That sucker is a handful. Was reading your posts on your build, I have used almost half of the epoxy you have used. I have notice that my okoume plywood does not seem to soak up the epoxy too much
