Re: Patching Around Strut

Agree with Faster. Remove all damaged material. I would go at it with a putty knife, then grinder. Check out that rusty spot. I would layer some glass on there to strengthen it. Needs a zinc too.

Remove the shaft/prop to check it. Need to find out why it did that.

Paint or don't paint, that is always debatable. You could use "Zinc coat barnacle barrier" by Pettit. Haven't tried it yet myself, probably work for a while.
