      A year ago I used the el cheapo
      painter's caulk to fill gaps between
      deck beams and the plywood deck
      on portions of my Micro Navigator.
      [It saved me the trouble of cutting
      and fitting wood shims.]

      I just tested the caulk, [poked it
      with a screw driver]. The year
      old hardened caulk is about the
      same as you would expect with
      hardened Plaster of Paris. You
      can scratch it, but it is tight.

      I dare say, it resists scratches and
      chips better than the adjacent wood.

      I agree epoxy is better, but how
      much does 'better' help, if it is
      attached to wood?

      Caulk is stronger than air.
