You are correct, in that context Nick means mixed resin and hardener, not just the resin. There is no place on a boat for unmixed resin or hardener. Nick's book is very complete, several of us have built G's from it, but you may have to reread it several times to glean all the details. Good luck, and dial up again if you have other questions.

: Could some one help me out. I'm pretty ignorant on epoxy. My rudimentary
: understanding of the process involves combining a resin with a hardener to
: form epoxy. I'm building a Guillemot using Nick's book and he recommends
: putting a sealer coat of resin on the kayak before wetting out the glass.
: Is my assumption right that when he says resin he is using it
: interchangeably with epoxy. Is there anytime when just the resin or
: hardener would be used by themselves? Thanks for the help.
