    I traded a jon boat that I got for free for an old highsider and am looking to fix it up some. Nothing crazy, just false floor, and front and rear decks.

    I'm fairly skilled at working with wood and have all the appropriate tools. I have only done a few small fiberglass repairs and projects over the years.

    Can anyone recommend all of the products I would need to pick up for my project? From what I've gathered it seems like I can frame everything out in wood, coat wood with resin, putty together, then glass on top?

    Any help on the actual products I will need would be great. Thanks!

    Lucky for me, someone has already done all the typing.
    Otherwise we'd be here a month while I hunt and peck.

    Then after reading if you have any further questions I'll be watching for your reply.
