If you have a choice between using two different products that will be adequate for the job, one costs 4 times as much and may kill you. which one should be used?

It is truly that simple.
Let's not get any more stupid about this.

Re: glassing plywood prior to hull installation

I quit reading this thread by about page 6. Just wanted to let my fellow marine professionals know that none of this is remotely new on this forum, dig a bit and you will find every single argument you have made in this thread stated (at great length) many many times on this forum by me. Don't waste your breath, it's like beating your head on a wall. Logic doesn't apply, doesn't matter that every pro yard goes about it the same (polyester to fix polyester). You can take a horse to water, etc etc...

For those who come here actually trying to learn something, my 2c would be to just note that the opinion of people who are actually currently professionally engaged in the marine trades is unanimous. I too give regular seminars on glass repairs, as well as having built and done major structural repairs to all sorts of boats. Just sick of arguing about it here with people who don't do this for a living.

That's a shame that the forum has exhausted you to such an extent

The thread is about glassing plywood not polyester to polyester. Would you use polyester or epoxy on plywood?

For the Bayliner I just replaced the floor in, I applied 6 oz cloth over plywood with polyester resin. I offered the option of marine ply and epoxy, but the owner wasn't willing to pay the difference.

I sell the materials I install. I make more money when I sell epoxy, because it is much more expensive.

So obviously financial gain is not a motivating factor for my selection of polyester over epoxy when appropriate.

The point I've been making all along. If polyester is adequate, it may be a better solution than epoxy.
