Here's another new wrinkle in the "new-fangled" category.

Introducing the Revolutionary Vulcan Anchor, by Rocna

couple of short videos embedde in the link.  Personally I use a 13kg or 29 lb.  Bruce clone (claw) with 30' of 5/16" chain.

Welcome!   I'm one of the lucky ones, because my wife jumped right on the idea as a huge supporter of the build.   I did recently mention thoughts of building a bigger boat, GA 28 maybe, and she wasnt nearly as eager about that - something about a kitchen remodel comes next...     Good luck with the pleading, and welcome to the disease of Tolmanitis!

New member to your site. I am stationed in Kodiak, AK and a Tolman is the perfect solution to getting out and seeing what this beautiful area has to offer. I'm in the planning/budgeting/pleading with wife phase of my build...Thanks for all the great info everyone has provided on here!

Lars.  I put mine in a metal coffee can.   I used a propane torch to heat and stir until it was all clear.   I dony have a specific temp but it was hotter that 140.   

When it cooled down, i tested it.   Worked fine!     

I had a fan blowing fumes away.   I did a whole 5 gal bucket that way thay had seen 4-5 years of sitting in a freezing garage.

I had to repair several leaky rooftop decks in an oceanfront condo development many years ago.  The original shoddy construction consisted of rolled roofing over a flat roof with a drain in the center that was piped across the garage ceiling below it to the outside wall.  We took the deck apart and put in a single piece of EPDM that ran 12" up the wall in all four sides (three sides against the second floor house walls and one side against a solid half wall), then reassembled the deck on the epdm to solve the leak problems. 

The epdm comes in 10' or 20' wide rolls and in two weights (.020 and .040?).  It is easy to work with, and can be field-seamed with special adhesives and cleaners.  With the sleepers and then the deck framing and decking on top, you are looking at major work to repair any leaks you might get in the future.

I thought somebody mentioned using.  Would certainly be faster than driving screws, and you wouldn't have to remove them.

Follow-up on this:  I've had the resin at ~140+ degrees for several days at a time and over 100 degrees for several weeks but the fluffy stuff doesn't go away.   I'll go to Sys III and see what they say.  If it's anything worth passing along, I will do so.

Thanks again all for the good suggestions.

 Jerry, the under deck drain idea is definately in play. They sell a Certainteed Vinyl system (DryDeck?) similar to your idea. A little leary on using metal near the salt coast ,although we are starting to some metal roof installs nearby.

Dave, Thks for link. That was the company I referenced the above material quote from. Interesting the way he uses latex caulk as the fillet on 90 deg intersections and regular wood filler for screwheads. Profs here are using a wood cant strip as the fillet at the deck/house interface.

 Looking at videos from Great Britian. They do glass roofs using Poly/Mat over OSB- claiming it bonds better to the rougher texture as opposed to using plywood.

Another option could be wood decking over EPDM membrane.

 Either way waiting until Spring as Wx window closed for glassing here.
