Re: White Oak and Epoxy??
Why are you borrowing trouble by picking out a wood that is well known to be problematic for glueing? Are you generally lucky? Or is it just in an area of your hull that won't be life-threatening or dangerous when it fails? Why can't you through-fasten or sister frame or something as is standard accepted practice?
Seems to me that that's more likely to be the "best possible choice".
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!
