LOL  Me too.  That Garrand was a great rifle.  Much better then the M14 of the day.  I carried one in Nam too.  You must be older than me then.  So you are now officially the senior member.  I was in a ROTC high School.  (My Mom had a dream)  Went right in the Army in 69 to get it over with.  Was a Sargent after 6 weeks of basic.  Then it was 2 years of hell after that.  Went to back to school in 71 on a 4F.  Got the 12" scar in my gut to show.  Makes a great war story. . . .LOL

Oh, so you've been 4F since '71?  OK, so it's not something that has happened in the last 3 years....

So any progress on your barge? Seemed like it was getting pretty close to paint last time you posted.

You put the top on before it was painted?  How was the roof sealed before that.  I hope not just primer.

As long as it is epoxy primer it should be OK, and not scuffed up, that is.

I've had epoxy primer in the weather for literally decades and not have it rust. Sticking glue on it and then vinyl cover will more than be fine as long as the surface wasn't scratched with sandpaper so hairline cracks were in the surface to allow moisture to get in and start rust.

That's in the open.  Don't trap moisture over it.  Why do you think Polaraco's roof rusted?
