- Oct 18, 2009What about just coating all wood with a couple coats of regular epoxy? And what about the frame gussets? 1/4 in ply? 3/4?

The test and examples on CPES sight have been heavely disputed for how well they realy work in new wood and stopping rot around where they penatrate to. I have removed wood that was partly penitrared and the rot was from there on with the parts coated being weak. The reason for not thinning epoxy in glassing and coating is it makes it weaker and also alows more vaper transfer. In both cases they add weight. To prevent rot one of the cheapest products is good old non pet friendly anti-freez. Brush it on let it soak in and dry then coat with epoxy or paint.
