    Question: I understand that you coat your deck beams with epoxy and varnish, but I recall one Brooklyn Boatyard video suggesting that this might cause maintenance problems when you need to strip the varnish using a heat gun. Could you please clarify? Thanks.

      The heat gun, if used, will soften the epoxy layer as well as the varnish.

    The scale of this build is remarkably larger in real life versus watching videos. Quite a scale up from the little Oonagh some of us are building, Would enjoy knowing and following anyone building this at home.
