Re: [bolger] Re: Polyester fabric and checking
- I did an experiment a while back with light glass (2 oz?) and acrylic
latex (or epoxy fortified) porch paint. The goal was to stop checking
on a hatch cover.
You paint the cloth down, basically, like people used to do with
canvas. Fast undercoat, drop the cloth down, top coat. It works well.
However, not recommended for any part that will be underwater
constantly. If checking painting ply is the issue, porch or garage
floor paint and glass works well without boosting the weight.

Another recommendation has been to use corborundum (powder) in epoxy.
Carborundum will abrade the rocks. I think I read of this in an
article on west coast drift boats ...
