Marine plywood treatment
by Bernie Morin
(North BAY, Ontario, Canada)
I have a plywood boat ('66 Chris Craft Cavalier) and it has been painted several times over the years.
I noticed that some of the sanding processes have taken the plywood down past the first layer of the plywood which exposed some of the plywood grain.
I find it hard to seal it up so that the paint doesn't soak through as the grain lines are still visible in some areas.
What kind of preparation/sealer should I be applying to these areas so that I get a good finish and seal of the grain?
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.
