    Default Building a wooden Jon boat

    I'm building a wooden Jon boat and I'll be fiberglassing it but I'd like to seal the wood with Thompson's waterseal it's just sealer not the stain and sealer. Am I able to fiberglass over the sealer?

    Why would you if you are glassing it? It's oily so I would be fairly confident it will interfere with the epoxy bonding to the plywood.

    On my plywood 20' jon I only glassed the bottom, rolled a coat of epoxy inside and out then Rustoleum marine paint inside and out. So far so good but I only finished it this summer and used it a couple of times since. I have a thread here on it but all of my photo links died in the great Photobucket fiasco.
