My friend has a boat that was just hauled. It is on the Long Island Sound. It is outside at a marina. We would like to do some bottom repair, grind some hull damage and re-glass and put it back in the water. The salesman finds they are easier to sell in the water.
Any tips on doing this kind of work in the winter. What is the chance of success?
Unless your hull and the materials that you are working with are warm enough, you will not be able to make a safe repair. If the hull and repaired section are not warm enough the resin will not cure properly. It is not honest to sell someone a boat that has had this done to it.

If you decide to go ahead and do it anyway, then remember what you did next time someone endangers YOUR safety.
