Just bought a Chesapeake Light Craft kayak kit that has been sitting for several years in a guy's garage. Anyone got any idea whether the Epoxy will still be good?
Also has anyone here ever built a Chesapeake 17

should be OK. Even if part has been used. I've used West epoxy that was up to 5 years old.

I share g2d's concern about checking the wood for warping, twisting, or water damage. This type of deformation would make building a symmetrical boat with fair lines difficult.
