Just slapped on some thinned linseed oil on the exterior of my latest canoe. I believe 2 weeks is the recommended drying time. I'm wondering... do I need to wait for it to dry before I canvas & mud? That is, if I canvas and mud immediately will the filled canvas take longer to dry because it's lying next to the 'wet' planking? Well, I suppose it'd be the inside surface of the filled canvas would take longer to dry - maybe the outside surface won't know the difference. Or maybe the whole thing would just take 2 weeks longer to dry - in which case I might as well mud now!
