    Heading to the store to buy some epoxy tomorrow that I need to build a new set of foils. However I am trying to estimate the amount of resin that I need.

    I know that I can look this up in Scott Fiberglass Boat book but I lent mine to a friend, and cant find my previous excel files with the numbers worked.

    Anyone know of a quick approx for volumes of resin or have their Scott book handy to look it up?

    weigh your fiberglass and buy the same weight of epoxy plus 15% for wastage.
