If the frames are oily I would stick with the 5200. I have replaced alot of bottoms and haveing something like 5200 that sticks good to wood I think would be a plus.
what kinda boat?? I am helping someone take a 17 criscraft utility and converting it into a rear cockpit speedster. It has a new 5200 bottom. I just finished moving the motor 18" forward in it for starters.
The next one I am hopeing to get started on for myself is a 22' speedster that I started years ago but this one will be all epoxy.
