I was actually thinking about this this morning. I just came into a classic Novi-shaped open skiff (think downeast picnic launch), carvel planked cedar over oak. To get it back into the water would require replacing at least two planks and recaulking. I would much rather reef out all the old caulk, pay the seams with something like Sikaflex, soak the planks with a few coats of unthickened epoxy, then lay a few layers of 6 or a couple of layers of 10 ounce glass over the hull. I would then like to flip the hull, spall the hull with cross beams to hold it's shape, remove the intermediate frames, coat the entire inside with epoxy, fair the inside, and reinstall intermediate frames over the epoxied/painted interior, then apply oiled ceiling strips over the frames. My speculation was that the Sikaflex would allow a little cross grain expansion and might stave off crushed fibers/cupping. Would ANYONE here support this decision?
