Tod, as long as water isn't getting past epoxy into wood you can wait as long as needed. I'll caution you though, unlike Steve Sanford who cranks out beautiful work at breakneck speed, you may find you move at a slower pace than when you built and last refurbed your Snowgoose. Cold temps slowed me down, but I move slower too. Maybe having multiple projects on the bench is the cause and not age. I'll go with that.
Eric,Dave, I think we are about to see a push of ducks, all at once, that has not been seen in many years.
