Re: My First Fiberglass Repair

I would be interested to hear what others say. Injecting epoxy into the crack may fix it. Depending on the size of boat (i.e. the pressure on the part), I would consider bolting the wood in place. I would do this by first reinforcing the fiberglass tabbing (which would mean removing the paint first!), adding a few more layers of more fiberglass, then drilling the reinforced section and bolting the wood solidly in place, and finally injecting epoxy. Overkill? Perhaps.
