Re: keel question
Don't glass it.
It would be an expensive, heavy and difficult way to do something that didn't need doing in the first place. You really don't need the Starboard either. Oak is plenty tough to do all the things you want it for without needing any of that stuff. In 8-10 years from now, put on a new piece of oak. . . .if it needs it by then.
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
