Re: Gap Filling

I like to epoxy seal coat the wood the day before glassing. That gives me two chances to fill the gaps with epoxy and on the second time (the wet out) the wood does not soak up the epoxy. I just knock off the hard fuzz (rasied grain) from the seal coat with a cabinet scraper before draping the glass cloth over the hull. The other advantage of seal coating is it is easier to get an even wetting of the wood i.e. no drip lines.
