    Coating bare fiberglass around engine compartment????

    Hey yaw,

    I just bought my first ski last week, 2010 RXT-X 260 Stage 3. Soooo FAST!!!!! haha Anyways, I am relatively new to the marine world, (lots of experience in the automotive and offloading worlds through) and I was wondering is there any reason I shouldn't put a layer of epoxy resin on the rough fiberglass edges around the engine compartment and all the other hatches? I am getting really annoyed with all the fiberglass splinters in my arm every time I reach into one of the compartments.

    Thanks
    JKMike

    Put masking tape around edges when working.

    I hear that.. I finally ended up rolling in white garage epoxy floor paint. Nice , bright and smooth.

    I don't see why not. Sounds like a good idea to me. If you take your time and apply several coats to only the raw surface it will likely smooth out nicely. If you do, post the outcome. I would be interested to see the results. RR

    Sweet, thanks for the input. Good call on the tape, deff helped for a temp fix. I will still probably put a thin layer of epoxy over the bare edges. Just gota let everything dry out b4 I do. I will post pics once I do.
