Question
Silkspan and not-dope

Hi All,

I've just finished planking my Fantail Launch (my first plank-on-frame hull). I'd like to try Pat Tritle's drywall mud, silkspan, and dope method for finishing the hull.

But before I stock up on dope and thinner and buy new cartridges for my respirator mask, I have a question. Can you do the silkspan treatment with something less noxious, like one of the water-based polyurethanes?

Anybody tried this? Pat, are you out there?

Thanks.

Joe

patmat2350,

That looks perfect. I'm off to Horizon to order a bottle. Thanks.

Joe

P.S. I agree, it's clear that the apostrophe and its uses are terribly misunderstood.
