bern, just wanted ot correct a few of your "facts".

skaters are epoxy, but use vinly ester based gelcoat with a binder coat then they layup the epoxy resin and glass.

actual epoxy is slightly more flexible that poly and vinly ester resin built boats. almost every one that you guys named uses least expansive polyester resin other than skater with epoxy. epoxy is also stronger therefor you can use less. the custom flatdecks are not gelcoated but the conventional style decks are.

epoxy boats normally ride better since the boat has some "give" to them. they actaully have some flex to them vs a poly boat which can not have flex since the type of resin will start to fatigue and normally will show stress cracks.
