Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

And here is another! Found out my mast step had rotted (shocker) earlier this season and completed my first epoxy/fiberglass repair.

Total cost in material was about 80 dollars including a 30 dollar quart of high build primer of which I used like an ounce out of. Sorry I don't have any more "in progress" photos but I choose to glass in a 3/8th inch plate of 6061 aluminum vs replacing the wood. The holes going through the deck and plate were drilled oversized and potted so the metal is completely incased. I hope that was an OK decision as that metal isn't coming out now! I don't think 80 bucks is a bad price for a mast step repair.
