how much epoxy would you recommend purchasing to stitch and glue and coat inside and outside of a 10' pram with a 4' beam?

looking for approximate to do coat (or two if recommended), fillets, and wetting out of tape for seams, and 3 box type seats.

1st build so any input will be greatly appreciated. boat will need to be stored outdoors off ground on saw horses, but considering building a bent pvc and tarp shelter, that is why i'm considering epoxy not only exterior but interior as well.

I think that if you're just taping the seams and not glassing the entire outside you'll need approximately 1.5 gallons of epoxy. MAS 1 gallon resin with 1/2 gallon medium hardener would be the right amount.

so that's a taping the seams and coating inside and out with epoxy should be 1.5 gallons or 3 gallons to tape and coat inside and out with a coat of epoxy?

like the 1.5 galllon option better. boat will be stored outdoors upsidedown on sawhorses under a pvc frame tarp shelter. is doing inside worth the epoxy. plan on painting with valspar "heavy weather" paint and grit added to seats and floor... thoughts?
