Sealing my wooden boat

Hello,

I recently bought an old 16'' wooden sailboat. It''s in great condition for it''s age (1950). I recently pulled out all of the styrofoam in the front part of the hull so I could replace a broken cleat. I noticed that the little bit of water that seeps into the boat pools up in the front under the styrofoam. While I have the styrofoam out, what should I put on the wood to prevent any (further?) rot? Should I put a layer of fiberglass down? Tar? Some other sealant? Any advice that you supply will be usefull. Thank you.

-Dan

Sealing my wooden boat

I don''t know the products, but I obtained a free brochure from Interlux at West Marine that talks about refinishing and sealing both fiber and wood boats. You might want to check out the Interlux web site or go to a Marine store to get a free brochure, it even has steps to follow to do the job.
