Re: Fiberglass Bow Tip Repair
I'm real handy, but I'm not sure that is a job you want to do yourself. That's not a bandaid, the whole front piece that hold your bow pulpit is simply ripped off. If you lost one of your fingers, you'd go to a surgeon to put it back on, you wouldn't try superglue.
IMO, your problem is that you need a triangle piece of 1/2 inch stainless steel to connect to your decking to connect the bow pulpit to. I doubt whether you can make that strong enough yourself when the whole front piece of the sail boat was ripped off with just an epoxy re-attachment.
I'd sand it down, epoxy seal it, and put in a new bow piece made of SS custom cut for the attachement to the pulpit, and six inches on both sides down the rail. And you need a whole new bow pulpit from the factory. You can't fix that one, its bent in three places.
OTHERWISE find a pro to help you.
