I do not have a local source on bronze bolts, but you should try Jamestown Distributors in RI.

I always recommend a few coats of saturating epoxy resin on wood.

I do not know what the problem is with the epoxy, but I do know that some brands of finishing resin have a wax in them that ends up on the surface, and subsequent coats do not dry properly. The wax needs to be removed, and sanding does not usually do it. Check with the manufacturers of the products you are using.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
