I have a 1942 Snipe that was my grandfathers.
It had been sitting for a number of years and this past summer I let her swell in a pond for a week and half, at which time it seemed like she swelled tightly.
After a few outings, it was apparent that maybe it was time to re-caulk.
At this stage I have her hull sanded and the old cotton pulled.
My questions involve what products are recommended for finishing the job; Prime the seems with an oil based paint (any recommendations for this?), use cotton caulking (I've come across a number of techniques- any good suppliers?), I saw that Pettit EZ primer is good to use on the hull itself.
What about to fill the seems (linseed oil and red-lead putty? - any alternatives?).
And finally any recommendations for actually bottom paint?
