Glassing Question

As Jeff says, epoxy resin is the way to go. Fiberglass resin won''t adhere well enough to the wood to make it long-term. If you are worried about the wood "breathing",or allowing moisture in the wood to escape, leave the inside unepoxied. Check on the Woodenboat site as well. They''ve had many aricles over the years on redoing decks the way Jeff describes, and someone will likely be able to provide leads for dynel. (They have a separate forum just for finding suppliers.)
