Thanks MR B

Puder yes Vinnylester does stink for sure!!! However it has a lot of benifiets over polyester and cure time and workability is a LOT better then Epoxy IMO.

hey Jon have you you might try some of the low viscosity epoxies from U.S composites. its a bit more cost effective than West System also. heres a link.

US composites epoxy page

you can also get it in slow, medium, and fast cures. i have had great luck with products from these guys.
