    I clicked on your name, then clicked on the last posts for this person at the bottom of the page. Easy peasy.

    At the helm, wind cools my brow. In retrospect I view it now. Time spent planning , doing tasks. When

    If your saw is binding use a blade with a larger number of teeth per inch ( I think I use 20's). Easy does it when cutting and support your work. That should resolve the issue.

    The thing I like about disposable gloves is that you are putting your hands into a clean environment every time you use a new glove. I use only disposables, and reglove often.

    I read somewhere that vinegar is not a good solution for washing epoxy from your hands. Vinegar, like acetone is a solvent and allows epoxy to penetrate your skin. The recommended method was to wash with a quality waterless hand cleaner.

    Looks like that EC is in the way.....I can take it off your hands if you like.
  11. Going to Maine

    I remember my breaths condensation freezing on my moustache at -20 degrees in Jackman. Walking out the front door being met by a clear clean cold wall of air that immediately slowed your breathing. Starting the car was a chore as the motor oil fought to keep the engine from turning over. You don't really appreciate -20 until you are in the thick of it hanging off a telephone pole trying to use hand tools. Now that there's fun. Now I've never been in -40 weather, but I suspect it's no more inviting than -20. Ahhh, Maine in winter.....Which reminds me of the fellow who lived in Maine all his life, when one day the surveyors came to his property and after some calculations informed him that his house was not in Maine at all. It was in New Hampshire. Well, says he, thank God for that...I don't think I could take another Maine winter....ayuh.

    I don't see why you couldn't leave the cabin interior unfinished. I'd want the hull , stringers, cabin sole to be epoxy encapsulated, but I don't see any need to put anything at all on the berths, cuddy sides, or ceiling other than for looks. I think if I were to cover the interior (meaning interior of the cuddy cabin ) at all I'd use a val spar polyurethane and be done with it. just my opinion. So is there something I'm missing ? Is there some structural need to have the cabin ceiling epoxied and painted ? If the interior walls of the cabin have some structural need to be epoxy coated and painted, then so be it. I doubt that that is the case, but it wouldn't be the first time I was incorrect. BTW, Joe Nelson can sure stir a pot !

    I'm not saying that you shouldn't coat any wood that you wish to coat. I'm just saying that you don't have to. As to resale, you will never get out what you put in. It's a wonderful thing to see a boat that someone has meticulously built to the highest standards. For my part I'd rather spend the time on the water. My next boat's name will be Dilligaff.

Sounds like something that would come from a Tolman guy :grin: We are a different breed. I was kinda thinking about just spraying val spar on the interior. Do a quick sand and recoat again. You just keep building Joe. Rules are for breaking and you learn more outside of the box. Play with your food, and run with scissors !!! ( I'm feeling rebellious today ! :grin:)
