mjrogers is on a distinguished road
So, we have one vote for sail it and sell it. That is my real question. Is this boat safe to sail conservatively?

If it were a small area I would drill and inject, but I am suspicious of the entire foredeck as well as the vertical face forward on the cabin. I suspect it would take less time to cut the deck than it would to drill all those holes.

I haven't done a repair like this but, I was a journeyman (approaching master) carpenter in my first career, so, I'm good with my hands and could probably do a decent job. I just don't have time for another big project. We have an ancient house which we are remodeling and like an idiot I told my new wife that I was a good carpenter. She's a doll and it is impossible to turn her down.

Thanks, Michael
