OPTION OF EPOXY
by: lARRY

The 2 reasons for considering the option of epoxy bottom are aesthetics and soaking.....I have a 30 yr old epoxy cedar strip canoe and a new epoxy cedar kayak both looking good with 0 maintenance...

Hi Larry,

The general consensus theses days, is that it is not a good idea to apply epoxy to a traditionally planked wooden boat.

I'm not saying that it won’t work but that there are so many caveats to the application and after care that it can be something of a short term fix and can lead to complications later.

Perhaps if you could tell us more about the problems you are trying to overcome we could offer a better solution to your problems.
