I think the problem with epoxy encapsulation is that it has to be
perfect; which is hard enough to achieve even on day one, and over
time, dings and nicks are inevitable. Other authors agree with Howard
The book _Wooden Boat Renovation: New Life for Old Boats Using Modern
Methods_ by Jim Trefethen [page 19] describes emphatically, that good
ventilation is how to prevent rot.
So does _Building Small Boats_ by Greg Rossel. Read his paragraph on
page 32 about ventilation and rot.
Also see the sidebar "Epoxy Yea or Nay" on page 25 of _How to Build
Glued Lapstrake Wooden Boats_ by John Brooks where he describes in
detail the process of rot on epoxy encapsulated wood.
