Wood Boat Building

This boat is getting its hull finished up prior to moving onto constructing the deck. The highest cross braces “hold” the fair shape of the boat while it is still without a deck. Even when a boat is under restoration and major parts come off for new wood or Git Rot peservative, such temporary bracing is used to hold the boat’s shape.

Boatlife Git Rot pours into the finest openings, penetrates, and saturates rotten wood. Git Rot dries into a stiff adhesive, which arrests dry rot by bonding wood membranes together with a mass stronger than the original wood. 2 Part Kits.

Git Rot is used on dried out, rotted, and weathered wood, Also excellent for window sashes, gutters, boat stringers, transoms and keels. Seabuddy has used this and it works. I got mine from www.Jamestowndistributors.com.

Here, with new wood boat building, seabuddy would use the West System. The resin is a clear, pale yellow, low-viscosity liquid epoxy resin. Formulated for use with WEST SYSTEM hardeners, it can be cured from a liquid to a solid.

It is designed specifically to wet out and bond with wood fiber, fiberglass, reinforcing fabrics and a variety of metals.

An excellent adhesive, 105 will bridge gaps and fill voids when modified with WEST SYSTEM fillers and can be sanded and shaped when cured.

The resin cures clear so that you can achieve a natural finish when coating with varnish.

WEST System is an acronym for Wood Epoxy Saturation Technique.

www.JamestownDistributors.com has been selling West System Epoxy for more than 20 years in their business.
