Epoxy resins and hardeners for building in Florida

Hi everybody, I have just received my Hitia 17 building plans (#456) and I'm really excited to start building, but this is my first build, as total newbie in this world I first need to do a lot of research. The plans recommends using West System but after reading a lot of really good reviews I'm thinking on using Raka resins.Does anybody else here uses it?Do you recommend the slow Raka 350 Non-Blushing Hardener?Any other recommendation is also welcomed. Thanks for your comments. See More
