I would not risk it. You will be fiberglassing and epoxying the outside of the hull while it is still on the forms (you may also be applying an epoxy seal coat depending on whose methods you are following). Epoxy can and will seep through very small cracks and gaps between the strips; and epoxy sticks to everything, including cured epoxy, quite tenaciously. So, if epoxy is what you put on the edges of the forms you could end up with a giant stuck mess. Suggest you use the tried and true (and cheaper) method of taping the forms.Here's my latest question that popped into my head while stabilizing the knots. I've seen all sorts of posts on taping the edges of the station forms so the strips don't get glued to them. Why not coat the edges with epoxy? I can see where it'd be a pain for stapling, but I'm going stapleless.
