No, you're quite right. Pygmy is definitely a bit conservative with respect to how much epoxy they ship with the kit. I was able to complete the kit with the supplied amount, but I've used just about every drop of it. In total I probably had less than 1/2 oz. of usable epoxy that I threw out because I couldn't use it at that point in time (excluding the tiny amounts left in brushes, rollers, roller trays etc. and what you get from squeegee-ing), so I was lucky that I never ended up mixing too much at a time. I think the ability to mix very small batches is important (there are a few tips on this forum about how to do that - one is with a gram scale, and Mick had a great idea about using small syringes). Obviously there's no point in Pygmy shipping more epoxy than they think you need for the job, so I can't really blame them... a little more might have been nice, but if you can do the job with acceptable results then it makes good business sense and keeps the cost down. The same goes for cloth and a few other supplies - I have a small bag of cloth cuttings left from the build, but nothing really big enough to make use of, so they've obviously done their homework to figure out exactly how much you'll need if you do it 'by the book' (and with no mistakes!), and supply exactly that amount. Build your boat with conservation in mind and you should be ok, but it's probably better to bite the bullet and buy more stuff if you need it, rather than try to skimp somewhere and end up with a boat that's not quite as perfect as you think it could have been.
