Hotcoating tonight. How much resin will it take?

First board. Seems like in all the steps so far I have always mixed up more resin than needed. Could have made several sets of fins with what went off in the pot. This board is a 6’ 10" fat ( 22") funboard. How many oz per side?

Howzit Alex, 16 oz should do the trick. Aloha, Kokua

Thanks for the assist.

I’d maybe consider upping that just a bit, a couple of reasons:

  1. it’s your first hotcoat

  2. you’re covering your first glassjob

  3. Your talking a dollar or two more in resin, at the risk of coming up short?

  4. I use 16 oz. on my shorties 6’2 - 6’3. Granted I’m not the most proficient, and could get away with less… but why? See number 5.

  5. My first major leap in my glassing quality came when I quit being stingy with resin. Granted this is more of an issue with the layup, but who cares. Maybe if you’re in production, or have had a lot of experience, but you’re neither.

Play it safe, take notes, learn for next time.
