Michael are you going to the same forum as Jacques? I think he is referencing a forum on 'Vaxxine//clsailboats' not 'clboatworks'.

If Jacques shares the HTML link to the forum he was visiting we can try to see we can access the site.

My wife gave me a very nice Spyderco knife for our anniversary. I immediately stabbed myself with it! Damn, its sharp. During my time with Spyderco/Sage a huge number of folks did the same thing with their knives! When I loan/show one of my Spydercos I always warn them it is SHARP! Good that you on...

So this winter I will strip down the rudder blade and refinish it with epoxy. Here is your challenge: epoxy isn't UV stable. It must be covered. It can be covered with varnish (after FULL curing or the varnish will not set and following prep as outlined by the varnish manufacturer). But varnish can...

So what I am reading into this discussion is that I if I ever put my Stuart Mariner back into salt water, that need to sand off the 12 coats of spar varnish that I used to finish the solid mahogany rudder blade that I built and replace it with a couple coats of Epoxy?

SWALLOW is cold molded so her cedar hull is wrapped in epoxy and fiberglass. There are worms...

Florida is thick with wood worms and wooden boatowners must be vigilant. They can't get through epoxy. After full drying, so not to trap water inside the wood, I'd repair the rudder with thickened epoxy to fill the holes. Cover the entire thing with a few coats of epoxy after fairing. (See note belo...

I've sailed SCAMPS in light winds and found the boat did just fine - better than a larger boats could do as the SCAMP is light and has a large sail area for her size.
