The Epoxy Panel after 1 year

"Protecting your wooden boat - Despite the good results from the "Clarity test", I say it is still a good idea to cover your hull with some light proof material. Make absolutely sure to allow the epoxy and varnish (or any coating) to cure to perfection before you slap a sheet of suffocating plastic over it. Give your new coatings at least a month to dry and harden. Protecting the hull in such a manner that permits some air circulation is very beneficial. If you have done your epoxy work properly (especially the wetout and thick filler coats) there is little to worry about. "
