Antifreeze for killing rot spores. Drying time"
(St. Augustine, Florida)
I've read a lot about using antifreeze for killing rot and took the leap.
My question has to do with the time of drying.
I have a cold molded boat in which rain water accumulated inside the epoxy coated marine plywood hull while the PO stored her.
I've dried the boat and then removed the top rotted bad veneers of wood and then liberally coated the exposed vaneer with concentrated EG antifreeze.
It's now been close to a week and although some areas seem to be drying out other areas seem to be holding the antifreeze and is oily in feel.
Do I just have to wait this out or did I use too much and I'm in trouble?
My intentions are once it's dry, to skim the top of the ply with thickened epoxy and a layer of cloth and then keep it dry and very well ventilated.
Any advice will be helpful.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
