Halfway done restoring my single fin it was in good condition considering its 30 years old, bogged up a major hole, reshaped nose and tail using a two part knead it epoxy putty that is waterproof and sealed all cracks on channels etc including the putty with a two part epoxy adhesive called araldite, sanded all down flush to the board with 80 grit no edges or anything. Was wondering if i could use polyester resin and fiberglass matting over the top of the cured araldite or will it eat it up
Any help is appreciated cheers

You can , you will only ever have issues using poly based resins over polystyrene based foam !
So Jak . . . laminate away !
