Hi all - I'm new here and am looking into doing a small plywood speedboat restoration for someone. The sides and deck need to be redone - apparently not owing to rot. I've been told it was built with resorcinol glue and galvanized ring shank nails over 40 years ago. I'm assuming I'll have to cut the nails off flush in order to avoid damaging the frames from trying to pull the nails out.
What will stick to old resorcinol glue - what do you recommend?
Should I sand/scrape it down to bare wood, and will epoxy or 5200 stick? Could I re-glue with resorcinol over the old? I'd probably use silicon bronze ring shank nails to secure the new planking.
Any thoughts/comments are welcomed.
