Re: Fiberglass Bow Tip Repair

Take the p[ulpit to a good metal fab shop, they should be able to straighten out the dmgd center strut enough to get a measurement for repair/replacement piece. They should also be able to heat the upper angle bends and bring them back to shape. As far as the glass repair What Denise said, or just reconstruct a new top section in place with glass and resin, and have a plate vmade to fit the shape of the bow with an attachment point for the bow rail that can be through bolted over a wider area!
