To Epoxy or Not to Epoxy?!, that is the question.
(Northwoods of Wisconsin)
I have an old, 15' wood strip rowboat with curved hull and wineglass transom.
The exterior has been fiber-glassed.
The interior has not.
Time to strip, sand, replace ribs and refinish.
Question / concern: Do I dare epoxy coat the interior (and put a protective UV varnish over it) or will movement from expansion and contraction cause the hard epoxy coating to split and blister?
Just stick with varnish and paint?
Looking for a longer-term finish.
This boat spends the entire summer in the water, exposed to sun and rain.
Thanks for your knowledgeable input, before possible regrets down the road.
