Has anybody used a marine grade epoxy for finishing projects that would be outside etc. I know they use Reg epoxy on some things?

I haven’t, but I can’t see any reason why it would not work.

A guy in our club uses one if the Aeromarine products … 300/21 epoxy resin. According to the manufacturer, it is used for watercraft, countertops, wooden furniture, laminating fiberglass and is also used for pebble paving and for coating floors.

Epoxy has no UV protection, so if left exposed to the elements, it will fail. To protect it, it needs a finish coat... even that Aeromarine stuff (which says right on the main page that it has no UV protection).
