I wud second the recommendation of the git rot; used it on the rudder of my peason ensign and it did a fine job with virtually no effort on my part.

It''s been many years since I had to deal with dry rot. First choice is replacement but when that isn''t practical use a product called Git Rot. I believe it is still avaiable. It is an epoxy that soaks into only rotted wood by capilary action and then sets up hard as a rock. It works.

Don''t know "Smith" penetrating epoxy, but:
First you have to remove the effected material...
Then you have to stop the further rot...
Only then, should you consider repairing with a thin (penetrating) epoxy, overcoated with thick epoxy.
