Which parts to epoxy?
Posted by Ivo Romenesko on Nov 24, 2006
We've started building our Passagemaker Dinghy (with sail kit), and are working on applying epoxy to the hull parts prior to assembly. The instructions are clear about coating the bulkheads and transoms and about leaving the bottom and #1 rail uncoated, but on page 18 we are instructed to seal the transoms with "along with all of the other parts." Which other parts should we do now? Mast support? Rails? Trunk logs? Rudder? Daggerboard? Skegs? Skids? Knees? Boom? Tiller? Everything? Will we encounter any difficulty if we seal all of these items now? Is there any reason to wait?
