    I am about to start my 16' stripper canoe from glen-l https://www.boatdesigns.com/products.asp?dept=189

    i am at the point of ordering my epoxy resin and fiberglass cloth.

    i am ordering 17yds of 6oz cloth. my main concern is will 2 gallons of epoxy resin be enough (including hardener i have 2.4125 gallons of material)

    i need to seal the hull, wet out the glass then fill in the weave of the glass.

    Do yall think it will be enough?

    Reckon it's plenty.. Total weight 50lbs so ~2.5gallons would be allmost half of it (if I proximated those imperials about right) :)

    Glen-L offers covering kits for that canoe and the epoxy is over 2 gallons. I'd say 3 gallons would be more accurate, particularly for a novice that may smoke a few.
