Thanks. How about some progress pictures to give me inspiration. East coast might be a far ways to go from Idaho. Hopefully some day mine will be worth $3000.
Sides removed and exterior sanded first with 60 grit and then 100 grit. Bottom sanded same. Now to do inside bottom. Removed varnish finish down to bare wood. Ribs removed. Not as much damage as I expected. I will sand inside and out then probably apply CPES.
Making progress. All parts removed. Sides and bottom sanded inside and out. Dealt with deterioration at side chine by removing 3/4" of material with circular saw and plywood blade. Will have to adjust side frames accordingly. Now to sand all the other parts and then apply CPES to everything.
Got some nice ASH at Woodcraft. They planed both sides and one true edge. Rip sawed 20 degree chines. Now bending with water and clamps to temporarily installed bottom ribs. So far so good. Have to keep them wet for awhile.
Thanks for your comment. I plan to fiberglass the bottom only and maybe a little up the outside. The wood is mostly decent and would look nice with an oiled finish. Can I use teak oil on the inside after using CPES to seal the weathered wood?
Seems like you have alot of rotted wood, trim, rails and caps, transom, stem etc. to replace, alot of carpentry before you worry too much about glassing the outside. I did seal all my plywood inside and out, frames, and about everything with epoxy though prior to putting it all together. I glassed the entire outside after it was assembled (minus the rails and caps)
Thanks. Which epoxy did you use? System 3, CPES? What did you use to glue it all back together? Brand, etc.? My biggest problem appears to be finding suitable material for my "carpentry", which so far has gone well.
