Re: Until Told OtherWise = Friday

Re: Vessel befitting a Seagull at last.

Traditional Clinkers flex I read or heard somewhere that when boat builders started to use plywood for planks
a polysulfide was used to seal the laps because ply wouldn't swell like the solid timbers did.

Re: Vessel befitting a Seagull at last.

saw it about 4 or 5 years ago.
