First of all hello to everyone here. I am fairly new to boat building and have been reading this forum this forum for a while and finally signed up! Last summer I built my first cedar strip canoe, a River Runner from Gil Gilpatrick's book. I used the West System epoxy from West Marine mainly because that is what he used in the book and I had good results with it. Now I am building the Puddle Duck and I have found several brands that are less expensive like Silver Tip, Marinepoxy and System Three on Boat Builder Central website. I am wondering if anyone has used these and if I would have good results with one of these compared to the West System?
