Of course, we all know the commercial versions (CPES for example) of sealants are available, but could you make your own sealant by diluting epoxy with a thinner? Has anyone done this? Comments on results, Pros/Cons?
After sealed, I plan to paint the trailer with a marine grade epoxy based paint; like Pettit.

I'll let you know. I'm gonna stop by a local West Marine, look at their system, as well as the Pettit Clear Sealant and Paint in the next day or two. Trying to be ready for the MadJack Roundup (aka The LCG).
