  1. OK folks, here goes. I am gathering materials for my 1st skin boat and I have found a local source for marine grade ply even, MDO, for the frames and high quality CVG Cypress to use for my stringers. I was really excited to learn (from the Googles, of course) that Cypress is actually a very good wood for boats due to it relative weight and its rot resistance. But, the cavet is that this cypress is kiln dried and the supplier warns that it MUST be well sealed to prevent warping as is absorbs moisture. I've searched the threads here and haven't found this specific question addressed yet...... is Kilz (water or oil based) a suitable product to coat and seal the frames ans stringers from water intrusion before skinning the boat? Other than the obvious issue with it being white and covering up the natural wood tone are there any reasons to not use Kilz on the frame? (SIDEBAR....Has anybody tried tinting Kilz???) Are there preferences for oil or water based? Why? I'm looking forward to seeing what the experience has to say. Blessings, Marty
