Well I finally got my West Systems Gflex epoxy in, along with the graphite powder, and colodial silica. So I spent this morning masking the ends and edges of the Green Land Paddle that I just recently finished. I then spend about an hour marking out the water line on my kayak with a marker, then set the kayak upside down on a bench in the garage so that I could mask out the water line with some really nice 3m plastic like tape meant for marine painting applications. I then sanded the entire surface down with 60 grit sand paper, once done I thoroughly cleaned the surface. The Gflex epoxy is quite thick, so I heated it up in hot water. I ended up mixing about 350ml of epoxy adding about 25% graphite powder and 5% colodial silica. I applied the mixture with a foam roller, it took a bit of work to get it rolled out nice and even. I spent about an hour or so to get it done. The finish is smooth glossy and black. I then peeled all the tape, and now am waiting for it to cure. The tape made the lines extremely crisp., with no bleed whatsoever. I will keep everyone appraised of how the boat bottom and paddle wear.
