I have traditional Arab sailing boat called a Jahazi built in Lamu, Kenya.
She is about 70 foot.
In Lamu we caulk every few months and I want to try to make this last longer by using some of the techniques described on your pages here.
I want to ask what you suggestion for what I should use to prepare the seam before adding the cotton caulking and then I want to try the putty that seems to be popular.
At some point while on your site I think I saw advice that one should use Smith's Original Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer CPES.
Is this correct?
Would this be a good product to use to prepare the seam with?
Thank you so much and I look foreard to hearing from you
