If you can avoid having to do the glass work now, and put it off until spring, that would be ideal. It is difficult to get the boat warm enough to ensure a good bond and proper cure of the epoxy. Forget about even trying polyester or vinylester resins. If you can tent the boat and heat the tent well enough, you might be able to get away with it...halogen lights and a propane torpedo heater will go a long way to helping, but not with the way the weather in NY/NE has been this week.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
