28003Re: Plywood checking on Brucesboat
- Jun 22, 2013I would have to agree, but that would incur one heck of a lot work,
especially if you looking at another build!
One fellow I know of who actually lives in CO is John Kolb who finished
the interior of an open hull with truck box liner. Might be worth trying
to contact him for his thoughts?
Another fellow finished the exterior of his fir plywood motorboat hull
with a brand of exterior acrylic water based house paint to which he
added milled glass and silica as a filler. Last I heard it had not
checked after a couple years of usage. But I have to search my files for
the paint brand and type he claims works best. I think a high-build
undercoat actually, then a finish coat of choice over. Plan on trying
that myself as all you just have to do is rough up the existing paint if
it is already acrylic. I think you folks down south refer to it as
"latex" paint, even though it has no latex in it?
