  • I dind't know that traditional plank on edge hulls could be coat with epoxi.

I was always interested in the history of Slocum, and also about his boat, after all lots of people like the Joshua lines, but I read something disturbing about her, its seems that in strong conditions of weather a boat of her lines and dimensions became unstable and can capsize and not get right side up again, that was...
