C-Flex is a very interesting way of protecting a wooden hull
that has the largest sized fasteners in it all ready or that will be exposed to toredo worms. Here are the steps:
1. Pull the boat and strip/sand all paint
off of the hull.
2. Let dry for a minimum of 30-60 days (in a shed if in a rainy climate).
3. Trowel on 5200 like they do tile grout.
4. Roll out the C-Flex onto the 5200 from the keel
up, back roll it to press it in and staple every foot or so with monel staples.
5. Wet in the C-Flex cloth with resin (special resin for the purpose).
6. Once cured, apply fairing compound and shape.
7. Fair the boat (very labor intensive).
8. Prime with epoxy
two part primer.
9. Apply barrier coat.
10. Apply paint
11. Apply bottom paint
I don't know where your boat is located but the outfit that did Oh Joy is in FL. I still have their info and talked to the guy who did Oh Joy. We are going to offer C-Flex applications as well at my shop. There are also folks down in CA who do it but the price
usually starts at 50K and goes up these days. I think we could beat those prices. I would need measurements and photos.
Also, any bad planks and hull damage must be fixed prior to C-Flex. The same for broken ribs because it's much more difficult to do afterwards. If the boat needs refastening, it should be done prior to applying C-Flex. Once that stuff is on, it ain't coming off. It's very tough as far as abrasions and impacts go. Oh Joy has some gouges and hickeys from prior impacts with object substantial enough to crack ribs and planks. The hull does not leak. PM me for my email
and we can further discuss this. Oh and post a picture of your boat. We all love wooden boat porn...
