Default Epoxy question

So my fairly new GNU already has some battle scars. in my first four years of snowboarding i have had maybe 2 or 3 collisions with other riders that were serious enough to delam/chip the top sheet of my board.

Well i got a new board this season and go figure its been in 5 collisions only one was my fault and i couldnt help it as i was sliding down a double black that was completely iced over on my ass.

the other 4 collisions were all noobs that were completely outta control. thing is a freaking noob magnet.

anyway im going to mount snow on friday, and im in class tonight til 8pm. its going to be too cold and dark to do it outside but its a 2 part marine epoxy that takes 24 hours to cure.

so my question is how bad does this stuff reek. it says only use in ventilated areas. i live in a small top floor 2 bedroom college apartment with livingroom/kitchen bar thats all open floor plan. since we are leaving for snow a 5am on friday i dont want to wait til tomorrow to epoxy my board. will i be able to use this stuff inside i have a skylight and 3 other windows.

Don't listen to some of these folks. Get marine epoxy.

Superglue works great.... for about a week until moisture creeps back into it. Your board is going to be exposed to ice and water, violently while you are jumping up and down on top of it while sliding down the side of a freakin mountain over rocks and trees.

Get the strongest, most robust stuff you can find. Better safe than stuck at a resort with a board you can't ride!

Tognar carries the same epoxy your local shop uses to repair boards. You won't find anything better for doing the repairs you speak of.

well i already purchased the epoxy yesterday, so im going with what i got. yeah so anyway theres a chunk the size of my thumb fingernail missing outta my top sheet and a few smaller ones and the core is fully exposed. i was gunna say how is super glue gunna fill that in and still be flexible. now i just need to figure out how im going to apply it i would really to do it tonight. either do it on my tailgate of my truck i just dont wanna leave it there since i live in a city where it can easily be stolen. theres always the basement of my house and the stairway leading to my flat but thats not well ventilated at all ...
