I use 3M scotch edge lock blue tape. Love that stuff. Big box store or paint store usually stock it. Make sure it says edge lock on the tape itself its totally different from similar looking blue tape. https://www.supplyhog.com/c/paint-painting-supplies/tapes-dispensers/masking-tape-paper/p/3m-scotc...
Its hard to tell without seeing what exactly it looks like. I'm pretty certain I'd use it. The wood seems solid, are you just concerned about the epoxy holding from the voids? When you put on the bottom planking maybe put screws in the keel that are the same length as the thickness of the keel so yo...

Ive tried a few of the different varnishes now and Captains is my favorite. I think going with varnish instead of auto clear is a good move regardless of cost. It makes it so much easier to maintain down the road. I think it gives a warmer, softer look that you expect from wood as well.

Many of those items are available right here through Glen-L. The rest you can find from various vendors online. This topic comes up quite often so you can use the search function of this forum and should find lots of info on windshield brackets, etc. The glass will be custom to each boat so you will...
Yep, you don't need to do them in one full thickness. You can apply them in two lamination half the thickness. This makes it much easier. Also, try bending them a little then letting sit overnight, then bend some more. Take a couple days to do it, each day it will bend further, easier. You can wrap ...
I've only used the Total Boat Lust varnish. It dried fast but was a bit more difficult to get an even coat and didn't cure as smooth as other products I've used like Pettit Captains varnish. It worked better on small items like rails then on big flat pieces like seats or decks. I'd give it a 6.
That's a good find Mike. Looks like the Lake Shore Castings ones already finished. I always thought as comparatively inexpensive as the lake shore castings brackets were that someone could make some cash by buying the lake shore castings brackets, polishing them and reselling them.
