The polyester is great..don't have to worry even when fishing around flooded timber etc...the keel stringer grinding on abrasive concrete launch ramps or sharp rocks is not to good...The Ozark streams have mostly rounded over river rock bottoms and mossy covered rock in places..again the keel stringer would need a rub strip ....and the fabric between the stringers might get the paint worn through but this polly. is tuf stuff.FloatingBear said:Loving the boat. Got the book. Jeff must have shipped it the morning I ordered because it only took 4 days.
How are you liking Jeffs Polyester??? I'm just not convinced yet that it will be strong enough and have enough puncture resistance. But I sure love the Idea of being able to use Minwax poly and or house paint!
I will be starting on a Yost Sea Rider frame when I get home this evening.
