I'm replacing my floor Im gonna start laying fiberglass this week end I've done some research but still have a few questions about the gelcoat application what prep is needed before applying the gelcoat over the fiberglass what should I add so the gelcoat will cure properly I've heard a few stories of gelcoat not cureing properly and staying tacky also I have every thing it takes to spray paint what would it take to spray gelcoat or would it be best to roll on any help would be appreciated

Couple of questions. What kind of boat is it? Are you just doing a section or the whole thing? How nice do you want it to look(are you wanting to spend the time and money to make it look perfect or do you just want to get it done and go fishing?)?

You do need to add wax to your last coat or and additive like patch aid or the gel coat won't cure.
