Larry are you talking about end grain joints or where I laminated the strips together to make the rail width . On the end joints I'm using TDS SIS 440 and on the laminations I used West Systems . I hope it doesn't fall apart either . I'm not sure that the Epifanes is going to do well over the top of the TDS but I shouldn't have to much flex going on. TDS doesn't recommend varnishing over the top of it they say the flex of the joint breaks the bond of the varnish and in time the varnish separates at the joint . But I think they are mainly talking sailboat rails with all the stress from rigging . I was going to not caulk the joints until after varnish but got to that point and said screw it and went on with the caulk .

Thanks Eric . When I bought the teak I bought all 5" wide to save on cost . I was thinking that William did not have that much curve but I would have wound up with a lot of short pcs and a bunch of joints . I decided to rip the lumber off the edge and epoxy back together with a jig to the curve . The only waste was the saw kerf from ripping . Some of the lengths are 9 ft long .

Apparently not! But I do happen to have a bottle of a favorite California Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel onboard as I speak...



...along with some of my favorite California IPA from Sierra Nevada and Lagunitas.

To keep with the thread topic, in the background you can see the fire hose I use to protect my aft rail when fishing. When it gets messy, I just blast it (in place) with my electric pressure washer.

Behind that is the flagship of USCG Station Vallejo located immediately north of my covered slip.
