1. The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    If you plan on laying up all 56 yards you will need more resin. One gallon will wet out a 50"x48" piece of 1.5 oz mat. A gallon will wet out about 2 yards of 28 oz woven roving. I know this because I'm laying up a new mold, and I've done it before.

    Thanks,
    I will contact them.
    I appreciate you doing the math as well. I didn't tell you I have three gallons on the shelf.
