Never glass polyester over eps. THAT will turn it to liquid.

It's really tough to see the "beaded" texture of eps foam through the fiberglass, but a good indication is to look right along the edge of the stringer, usually there will be little pockmarks that line the stringer because eps doesn't shape as evenly as polyurethane.
Your right - I had it backwards. No wonder why all my attempts to finish a board turns into a glob of jelly.
