Im a complete IDIOT!

I dont believe it.

Just laid 3 coats of epoxy to the deck of my miracle sailing dinghy.
Its taking a while to cure so i recheck the label.

It says 2 parts epoxy for 1 part hardener.
Ive been mixing 3 to 1!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its been 4 days, not v warm ones, and the glassing ive done seems to have set hard. Its not tacky.

The decks when sanding have been a bit smeary, even after 3 days.

Been sanding a fair bit because it was sagging and bobbling.
Now i know why.

Am i trully stuffed or will it fully cure?

The deck needs to be waterproof but structurally wont be taking a load.
The reinforcing of the transom using epoxy, filler and tape seems to have hardened nicely but will it fall apart over the season?
