I am about to assemble the wooden masts of my Tiki 31. I am using scarf joined Douglas Fir to achieve the acquired length. Since the temperature is low for using epoxy and for a faster assembly I am thinking of using polyurethane glue (mercola marine glue) which is also expansile and appropriate for small gap filling. Do you think I will have any problems with that both during the assembly and long term? The plans also suggest to coat the wood with epoxy on the inside before the final assembly. Does anyone know if epoxy works well combined with polyurethan glue and if not what can I use to seal the wood of the inside surface of the hollow masts ?
