Ask the bed liner folks how well it would hold up under boating conditions...., are you talking, INTERIOR, or EXTERIOR?

You're better off just using a marine epoxy to seal it. If you then want to cover it with bed liner, that's an option too. I suspect the epoxy will actually be cheaper too.

sounds great to me

Read this product description....bonds to wood, metal, etc.....
http://www.nonslipcoating.com/truck-bed-liners.htm
......No single product can be so easily applied to so many different surfaces, for so many different uses... from a truck bed to a ship or boat... from a shower area or swimming pool to a water treatment facility or refinery... from a loading dock to stadium steps or ramps... from a secondary containment area to a roof top... from a kitchen area to helicopter pads or bridges etc..

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I assume you are doing ply on frame construction, as you would be taping the seams with fiberglass if you were doing stitch & glue. Taping the seams with fiberglass wouldn't be a bad way to proceed, anyway. In ply on frame construction, the chines should be angled to provide a fairly good seal when the ply is glued and screwed to the frame.

Cheers,
Roger
