I have a little problem as shown below.
I bought the boat recently and cannot find information on how did that happen. So I am assuming the cause was poorly adjusted rig tension. (Other chainplates look perfectly fine).
I am planning to open and reinforce the area and put the chainplate back.
I need some advise on;
- What kind of material should I use for reinforcement (specific advise with brand name would be superb)
- There is no sign of leak. Should I really worry about drying the area thoroughly. If yes how can I make it dry(accept opening and letting it dray. We have some rainy days ahead). Acetone, hot air, etc. are safe to use on fiberglass deck?
- What caulking material you would use? Butyl Tape, Sikaflex 295, Sikaflex 291 or other?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
