"Using a GPS I could hold 4 mph for a minute or 2 and was able to briefly hit 5 mph for a momentary sprint.  Long distance would be much slower of course.  If I'm drag racing a raft I will implode before I would let them win !"

"You can do resin over linseed, but the gunnels will need to dry out for a year or two (I did that on my oldest oars which were first linseed-oiled, and are now epoxy/varnish).I'd agree with @Kevin Bird that boat soup is probably what…"

"Many use some concoction "boat soup" that is often the builder's proprietary blend.  Brad Dimmock has shared his formula: equal parts boiled linseed, spar varnish, turpentine, and pine tar for a nice aroma. No need to ever sand…"

"There's definitely a line going left, but it won't avoid the shallow mess, you'll end up in 85% of the same mess.  If I were rowing a big heavy dory that I love, I'd take out at Harpham or the City Park for sure.  You…"

Thanks God bless.
