Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #7: Sealing the Hull Interior

Objective This boat is going to get wet and stay wet for days at a time. I plan to seal the interior with epoxy to give it at least some protection from the elements. My main concern was with the plywood. That is sealed well with the fiberglass cloth. The keel, gunnels, and ribs will be sealed by caulking the seams where they meet the plywood with thickened epoxy and coating the rest with unthickened epoxy. Caulking I imagine a builder could use silicone caulk to seal the joints,...

Random shop notes #2: Other people working.

Today’s been a day of other people working—I had a guy from the community maintenance staff looking at my down spouts, and there will be an electrician coming in a couple of hours to give me an estimate of what it’ll cost to run a couple of dedicated circuits for my shop and tell me if I need a sub panel or not. That’s right – my 84 square foot patch of the basement is going to get all gussied up with some dedicated circuits! One for lighting and charging un...
