Hi Jamie
I know it is in your posts somewhere but what did you use for the deck caulking. I think from memory you used epoxy but what colouring agent did you use and what was your top coat?
Regards Tony

Hi all,

Have been getting out in the Belle quite a bit.
Some pics of the last weekend attached.

We our ashes a 4m x2m inflatable pontoon for use at the dam, it is awesome, makes getting in and out so much easier.

What a great idea to use an inflatable raft as a means to access the boat. Looks like Great Fun.
