A good book to start with is Don Casey's This Old Boat. You should also check out the West Epoxy website (www.westsystem.com), as they have a lot of good information there.

To do this repair, you'll want to use epoxy resin, since it has the strongest secondary (adhesive) bonding characteristics of the three types of resin. I recommend using epoxy from Progressive Epoxy Polymers in NH (www.epoxyproducts.com). I would recommend getting the fiberglass from www.fiberglasssite.com.

Tim Lackey's website has some god info on doing thiis kind of repair.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
