Saturation coat on hull
After wiping and vacuuming the boat clean I moved it back into the garage. One more final wipe down and I was ready to apply the saturation coat of epoxy over the entire outside of the boat with a foam roller. I mixed 6 oz of epoxy and rolled it on the hull -- WOW! The grain of the wood comes out beautifully and the colour darkens to a very warm redish honey colour. I had to mix two more 6 oz batches of epoxy to cover the entire hull. Between epoxy batches I went over the covered area with a foam brush to eliminate small bubbles that had formed.
