Re: WB as a voice for the wooden boat community?
WOW, Boy thats a bigun! But for the most part epoxy is being used because of what is being described here many times, the lack of access to the water and the real biggy fewer boatyards to fix them or money for owners to fund the additinoal expenses required to maintain them. Lets not even talk about the lack of boat slips across this country either to meet the requirements for a planker.
Truth be told, if the trend in this forum's posts is any indication, without epoxy there darn near wouldn't be any "wooden" boats being built today at all!
So you have your choice. By the way I just finished a tiny piss pot by comparison, mixing some alternative sealants with great success and spend as much time if not more on the water than probably any other active member here. So there is merit in even mixing methods if not solely going the epoxy route to create a usuable boat, not one that you are constantly plugging a bunch of gaps and pump the dang thing constantly, while sleeping with one hand hanging off the bunks too in the middle of the night.
Too late, they have an entire section here on the forum dedicated to politics. Good to see you Scott still kicking around sir.
However, WB Magazine should stay out of politics
