This episode is an interview with Russell Brown on the ins and outs of marine epoxy – which most boat builders will use at some point in time. I drilled Russell with a plethora of questions that have come to my mind since I began using marine epoxy in the early 1990s.

Russell and I had a great time discussing the gory details of how epoxy works, the best way to use it, and why it is probably the best “glue” available for the marine environment.

You can listen to a previous interview with Russell and Ashlyn Brown about their personal/boating history at HOWB102.
