I'm about to embark on my first DIY split to and think I've had all of my questions answered in most of the other threads in here. So much good info. My one concern though is regarding the long term durability of a lack of metal edge on the inside edge of each ski. This seems like the area most prone to damage either from water or an errant step on rocks or something. So obviously proper sealing of the edge is key, but is there anything else? Am I making something out of nothing here? :scratch: Thanks y'all...

I tend to sand and re-epoxy the inside edge of my DIY board every 20 or so times I take it out. My first DIY board I used 1 hour epoxy and I got water damage to the wood and eventually I broke one ski right in half. Now that board is part of my fence. Apply Marine grade epoxy sand and repeat about 3 or 4 times

Coll, thanks man. Yeah, seems like marine epoxy is the gold standard around here. Thanks for the info...
