Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

CK,
Have you considered grinding it down and doing the glass work yourself and sending him the bill? I've done work simular to that on the hook with a little honda generator and a grinder, Curtain off the v berth with some plasic, get a little shop vac and a fan. The glass work is a lot like the paper machet' (sp?) we did in grade school. I've seen lesser people tackle bigger projects. Use west system products for easier mixing, less fumes and better bonding. You can probably borrow most of the tool's from sympathetic sailors. Document the work and save the recipts. Some times to get a ball rolling we have to pick it up and throw it.
