Karim, you've thought of everything.

You know, from this angle you somewhat resemble David Duchovny. Trust no one!

Ha ha! Props if you understood that one. :0)

Can't believe nobody wanted the sump. I'd have taken it for sure... and I have nowhere to put it. But I would think of something.

It's actually a quote from the movie "Can't Hardy Wait." :0) But they are referencing X Files of course.

Thx
The thin or thick?
And how much?

I'm planning a 120x48x48" plywood and was checking costs. My last plywood I did with bluemax, which worked well but like the glass look of epoxy better

Thin 635

I am probably going to use a gray or white pigment the next time.

Raw wood looks weird in a reef

Yes yes I'd pigment it for sure. How much did you use?

I took my surface area in square inches, multiplied it by 0.25 (quarter inch thickness) and then multiplied by 0.004329 to concert to gallons.
