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?
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.
