1975 Grampian 28 Engine Mount Failure

Hello Everyone,

I've got an engine mount that is cracked and wobbling when the engine runs. I've stripped away some of the failed fibreglass repair. Now I'm back to the original mounts and hull in some spots.

When I tap on the two engine mounts, they seem hollow. Does anyone know how these were built? I would have thought hardwood wrapped in fibreglass, but the sound tells me otherwise. Or maybe everything has delaminated?

PS, tried to upload an image, but the sailnet server says no!
