    cedar strip boat

    I am working on an old cedar strip row boat and making a few repairs before painting. The boat has been out of the water for a couple of years and leaks. I have heard that soaking the boat could take care of the leaking as the wood will swell and tighten. If this is the case do I soak it before or after I paint?
