cracks between 5200 seams om bottom planks

2 posts in this topic

I am restoring a 1950 CC Riv. and replacing about 80 percent of the wood, I have put a 5200 bottom on it with new planks then when the 5200 was set up I filled all the screw holes,sanded and then applied 2 coats of CPES and about 3 months later I applied 3 coats of Interlux 2000e I have notice in some areas the 5200 seam is cracking what would be causing this and what can I do to fix it ?

Not sure, usually what happens if you use 5200 on the seams and the wood shrinks, it cracks the planks.  I don't know why the 5200 would crack unless it was thin in that area and or there wasn't good adhesion for some reason.
