    I have to finish the saturation coat of epoxy and then top coat the inside of the boat. Has anybody used Helsman, Indoor/Outdoor, Spar Urethan? What were the results, good or bad?

    I would post some pics of hell-mans varnish ? :twisted: after two years.

    But I won't. I don't want to scare you or prove just how awful a boat can look. :oops:

    My advice, Don't use it.

    Thanks guys for the compliments. :) I was pleased with the look of the inside gunwale. Makeing it laddered only in the middle section presented a slimmer look. We belive it will offer adequate attachment points for our usage.
