A predictable response.

I have been working with wood for 45 years. But thanks for commenting.

Re: Teak veneer over MDF?

I too am much less fond of epoxy that I was years ago. Not the best "glue" in the world IME. Still.... good for some things....
I suppose in a perfect world it's better, but while working on boats it's hard to make things perfect.

Unless you provide some kind of context I will figure this is pure BS. Your 45 years should have included some hands-on experience with WEST to backup your fantastic assertion. I have been using WEST for nearly 40 years, in boat building applications, and have never seen what you claim. Either you mixed it wrong, contaminated the substrate, or didn't follow the formulator's recommendations for application procedure.

I am comfortable with my comment and don't feel the need to justify myself to you.

Ankle biting is preferred?

I was concerned about using Starboard for that reason...I received some faulty info evidently.
That said, what would you use for "coring material"? I'd like to be able to walk on the material and use it to hold some P.V. panels....in my perfect world. If you can direct me to any specific info...I'll buy you a good rum when we meet.
