Epoxy Glue and Poly resin

I was told that If I use Epoxy Glue in a scarf joint that I can't apply polyester resin over that joint or the resin will react with the epoxe and it may come loose. The same teacher taught that you can use epoxy over cured poly resin to make repairs on fiberglass boats, but never poly over a epoxy repair. Because I have held to be true I have always used other glues for my scarph joints. In the boat that I am now building I am using titebond II for all joints but intend to seal with poly resin as the wood is new and should asorb the resin well. Is there glue that will make my scharph joints stronger that will work with the poly resin??? I have built one boat using titebond II and it is sevearl years old and still holding. Any ideas???
