I am a very new wooden boat owner and have a question, noone yet could answer.
My boat rested the last two years in an barn and is threfore totaly dried out. If I put the gfk and the finishing on right away, the wood will increase, when I bring it into the water and the finishing may crack. If I put water on it before, the wood will already be increased. But if it was too much water, the finishing may not stick and maybe it will dry out later and the finishing will crack.
Whats the right amount of water and how should I bring it in contact with the wood before I start the finishing? Is there a rule or an experience you can share?
Sorry for the english, I hope I was at least a little bit understandable
Good bye, Peter
