Dry rot never sleeps

Back to the rotted out it out, thinking about how to repair it. may use Smith Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer (CPES) to soak into the fibrous rotted wood to make it strong again. Fortunately this is the only location on the boat where rot requires attention. Of course rot can be where you don't know so I'm knocking on wood and hoping it sounds good (if it has a nice hollow sound it's sound wood if no knocking sound good chance there's rot, if you poke an ice pick into it and it sinks in, it's rotted.)
