Line X Coating on Wooden Floor in Raft

Does anyone have any experience using Line X on a wooden cargo floor and on side rails of a raft? I'm curious how it will hold in such a punishing environment, with all of the abrasion, water, traffic, sun, etc. I only want to buy one board and be done with it for my lifetime.

Thanks :P

Line x is the $hit. Boulder boatwerks uses it on some of there wood dory parts. It should encapsule the wood and prevent any moisture from geting in. Make sure your wood is totally dry or you would just seal moisture in.

do you think the roughness of the line-x rubbing on the raft over time would cause a wear spot on the raft?

That is a fine point. I would not want the texture commonly associated with line x rubbing against ,my boat. Not sure if he can soften it up for the contact sides.

Call Kyle at Line x of Boulder at 303-915-7371.

Yea. The rubbing may not be such a good thing. I could mount foam pipe insulation around the perimeter of the board. I would potentially feel like braining myself with the oar secondary to the squeek produced from the foam/hypalon interface, but the boat would remain unscathed. I will give the Boulder Line X people a shout. Thanks
