Glassing Question

Believe that Alan Vaitses'' book, "Fiberglassing Wooden Boats" was written before the development or widespread acceptance of epoxy resins - perhaps in the mid 1960''s. My father fiberglassed over our Cape Cod Knockabout using essentially this method. It just about doubled the displacement of the boat. It didn''t leak afterwards, but we couldn''t get it to move much in less than a full gale either.
