Perhaps I am asking an old question but I've looked through the posts and "what the hay"
I want to waterproof a plywood tank. I've read the post about epoxy paint but would fiberglass resin work? I ask because I have a lot of it around. If so what about toxicity. Has someone done this? I don't want to use glass matting though as this will cost and then I might as well use the epoxy.
Thanks,
Dale

Figerglass resin is not completely waterproof. I would go with a good marine resin, make sure it is 100% solids with no thinners added.
