Re: Other: Please help me revive a boat

: Unfortunately, now I have to go back to sea for a couple of months.
: On the plus side, the boat will have plenty of time to dry out
: hanging in the garage. On the downside, it will be 10 weeks
: before I can pick back up on the project. I will say that the
: work I've done today was a bit of fun and I look forward to
: getting this thing back on the water. I feel good about the
: start I've gotten and again, I appreciate all of the advice and
: ideas given.

: Thanks!

Btw, standard tool for checking for rot is a thin knife, like a paring knife. If it goes into the wood with little effort there's rot, if there is considerable resistance there isn't any. Often times on a boat stored outside the rot dries out and it doesn't look rotten anymore, worth checking as it'll continue to spread when the outside temps are warm and moist again.
