Re: S&G: Do you glass your wood coamings?

I pretty much had the same thought, he should be glad he didn't try that on my boat.

It's possible that the story got more dramatic in the re-telling- I just repeated what the owner told me.
However, most good coaches around here (PNW) just won't let you into a class or on to the water unless your boat is properly rigged and you are dressed for immersion. The more advanced the class, the more strict they are, IME. So I wasn't that surprised at that story; it came up in a conversation about the 'optional' deck rigging kit for the Pygmy boat that person was building..
