Have to be careful.... denatured alcohol can range between 70% to 99% alcohol and still be sold on the shelf the same. At 99%, not bad. At 70%, that's where questions ariseDenatured alcohol is at least 98% pure alky. Acetone is brutal; the stuff evaporates about as fast as it leaves the containter.
I vaguely remember the marine grade stuff from replacing the whole floor decking in a 1960s starcraft deep v runabout. I was almost like pour it from the can, push it around a little where you wanted, and it was done.Nick the gaffers tape I saw had a waterproof backing so that is out. Ever see a sound stage or theater where all the wires and things are taped to the floor? That is gaffers tape. CK80 I have a gallon can of Evercoat Marine Resin that it says is thick for boat use. It is very thick and hard to brush out but that was OK for the patches. I will try the Acetone/Lacquer Thinner as that is what I have on hand. I usually use that to clean up with and the can says to use that too. No mention of thinning since it is meant to be thicker than usual. I am thinking the solvent will vaporize fast and then the resin can cure normally. I may have to take it all outside as those vapors are probably explosive. A hot attic is no place for Acetone or Lacquer Thinner vapors. Also I was saving a gallon can of automotive grade resin that had a plastic cover with two tubes of hardener inside. Well, the hardener leaked, ate through the top of the steel can, and hardened the whole gallon right in the can. Amazing.
This foam backed stuff is a LOT less forgiving when laying it down than most other fabric types ive glued. One guy can do it, I have, but it's easier with two.CK80- you were right, the second coat went on much easier and covered better. It took 16oz of resin to do a complete second coat on both boards. It has a nice smooth finish now. I will stash it in the garage to wait for better weather to try and do the cloth. MAN it is hot this year.
