Since this is a classic I would like to hold
off as long as I can from glassing it. As you said, I would like to take my
time and do it right, and do what ever I can to preserve the boat. For
some reason when I think of water and wood I think of rot.
Tell me what you think of this. I have been asking any old timer here in
Gloucester MA (The Fishing Capital Of The US, The Movie "Perfect Storm"
just to give you an idea where I live) what they think of this. A few guys
said to use petit seam compound, sand it, wipe it down with terpentine,
use interlux primer, then a good marine enamel paint? Does this make
sense to you? I know that the old way is not always the best way through
trial and error. Also a guy on the boat forum said to try 5200 for a caulk?
What do you think, does this make any sense. Thanks ahead of time.
