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.
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.
