My question is you first wax your rigging line then after tying etc you coat it with water- diluted PVA. My chemistry voice says you have put a very hydrophobic coating on the lines the expose them to a water-based glue, expecting the glue to penetrate and hold the knots, line after drying. How much penetration do you get past the wax? Has anyone tried dilute PVA with out waxing first? How about diluting with a better solvent like 50-50 alcohol/water to get better intrusion and quicker drying? Just a thought.
