Re: Another Wet Ericson
I replaced the ply around all the ports on my Columbia with an off white laminate over well sealed plywood and it looked fantastic. However I wouldn't tackle a structural bulkhead, Im an experienced woodworker but I would have to really love a great deal to dig into one like that.
I didn't get my pocket knife out but the bulkhead problem may be only the top layer of veneer.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
