    Hello. Im building a wood strip canoe. I put the fiberglass and epoxy august last year. The canoe is placed in a basement with no sunllight. Is it possible that the epoxy has taken any damage beacause it has been staying without varnish? I though only uv damaged the epoxy... I looked really Nice after i put the epoxy on but no it looks more "milkywhit".

    The whitish material may just be amine blush. Be sure to wash the canoe thoroughly with mild detergent and water before coating with more epoxy or varnish. A dark basement shouldn't have bothered the epoxy.
