Progressive Epoxy from new hampshire. I bought the 15 gallon kit of no blush, and then another 6 gallons for decks, dog house, to coat the basement floor after spills, to coat all my scrapers, to coat pretty much everything except the skiff, etc.

I have been mixing their cellulose fillet with my own sawdust.  Just make sure to take out the screws and cured epoxy nuggets.

I asked them about picking up the epoxy from the Rhode Island factory to save on shipping,  but then I would have had to pay sales tax which was going to more than the shipping costs.
best,
