is it a bad idea to build skimboards in the same room that my houses water heater is in? i know their are some nasty fumes involved in the materials, but how flameable are they? is the pilot light something to worry about?

Funny you should ask, I do. I actually use it as a shelf sometimes. Never had a problem but I usually have the bulk head open. Put on a fan and it will probably be fine. Epoxy dosnt emit nearly as many fumes as polyester, or so I`ve read.

water heaters are raised up for a reason...gases that explode at lower temperatures are more likely to sit lower or closer to the ground..the pilot light on the water heater can and will ignite

If your gonna use polyester type resin you do not want to use it in your house at all. It doesn't really matter if you have an open flame or not. Your or your parents house will stink for a long time. Not to mention it's very bad for you.

In your back yard? If your not V.bagging. Very early morning lam and use a UV cure resin. The soft UV's in the morning allows the resin cure slower. Which is better. If your V.Bagging it's up to you?
