STOP! Step away for a while and do like daddy says and go sailing on someone else's boat. We've all been there and done that. Ok, you've done it all at once, but think of all the great stories that you'll have at the tiki bar when some yutz looks at how great your baot is and says that he'd like to buy a fixer-upper someday. This stuff is priceless!

Seriously, I've run into the same thing. It happens most when I'm uncomfortable, rushing, tired, hungry, have to go to the bathroom...... I learned after a long time that I can actually feel when I'm headed down a bad path and have learned to just stop and come at it on another day.

What you're feeling is normal. Especially for a sailor.

Take a run, get a drink, and go look at a sunset.

BTW, I don't think that epoxy burns as well as fibreglass. But your fittings will be easier to reach.
