Anybody have any comments on acquiring and having delivered to my backyard, like maybe, a Matthews 40, or 42 Sedan Cruiser in need of some TLC with the intent from the start of doing a cold molded overlay? The overlay would consist of stripping the paint, replacing any rotted planks, air drying to an acceptable moisture content, and applying the first layer of diagonal plywood strips not with epoxy but with roofing patch compound and mechanical fasteners. The second layer would be epoxied with Dynel and epoxy over that. The interior would not be epoxy saturated, just redleaded. This has been a method recommended by George Buehler.
The boat would initially live in the Chesapeake region and eventually make its way down to Florida, and hopefully end its days - and mine, island hoping the Bahamas and Caribbean.
Am I an idiot for even contemplating this?
