janders Thanks Tim! If you're in the neighborhood, stop by for a beer.

Please let me know how the chain plates project goes. We're going to do that this spring.

Tim R. Nice job Jason. I can almost taste that cold beer!

I am currently working on rebedding the chain plates on Carina.

janders For anyone researching this issue, here's what I ended up doing:
Fridge Box Construction

The short version, I used lots of coats of pigmented epoxy which I then faired down, sanded, wet sanded and polished. Came out looking gelcoat. Glossy. No odors.

new fridge box - what finish for interior?

I'm building a fridge box for Hello World. I've finished the fiberglassing on the interior of the box and I'm ready to put a finish on. I was planning on using epoxy mixed with white pigment to finish the walls but it's not going well. Coverage is not great and I get a lot of air bubbles. Does anyone have a better recommendation on a food safe finish that will adhere to cured fiberglass laid up with epoxy. I'm assuming gelcoats won't adhere to an epoxy layup. Is that true?
