"Hi CW Is your sticky mess the oil concoction your placed on top of the epoxy or is the epoxy uncured underneath? Either way, I'd remove all the oil on those spots with a putty knife and rags. Then clean and sand the epoxy to roughen up so the…"

"Thanks for the replies Guys. The glassing project is done. I kept working on cleaning up the bottom until I reached home, the true bottom. I had Cy of Ray's in my corner and he mentored me through until the end and even after. Thank you Cy! I…"
