  1. I've been rebuilding the cabin top area around the maststep on an S2 7.9 and things have been going smoothly until now. Applying gel coat over my epoxy repairs; gel went on easy enough and hardened up well over most of the repair but there are a few small blotches where the gel did not set up. These blotches appear wet, and are still tacky even after 24 hours. 90% of the surface is set. Should I wait some more, or did I do something wrong in the prep that is preventing the gel from setting? Lay up for the repair was balsa core, glass, 5 to 1 resin (Total Boat) surface filler where needed of resin and West 410 followed by much sanding and many wipedowns.
