I realise that I can't control which strips get coloured. I was going to do the whole hull while it is separated from the deck. I figure that way the hull will be darker and it will be sealed under epoxy before the two pieces are put together.

The dye only stains the surface of the wood, It must be applied after final
: sanding and that means it is impossible to avoid staining any adjacent
: accent strips. Since you have used it before I'm sure you know all this
: but the quick recap is for the benift of the other readers

: Aniline dye is compatable with epoxy just make sure you allow enough time for
: the water to evaporate before applying epoxy.
