Re: Frers F&C 44

To people interested in the F & C 44. I have restored 2 of these boats for major hull damage. The hull was blistering and bulging from delaminating fiberglass Most of this damage was caused by the toe rail leaking into the hull causing mst of the damage. My biggest concern was the chain plates that were comepletely rotted due to the water damage that i was amazed they didn't rip out of the side of the boat. I had to make new chain plates to install, i also had to peel the hull, and reglass the whole hull and fair it then I gave it a awlgrip paint job. This is just an abridge essay on all the work that went into this job. Feel free to contact me with any detailed questions concerning this boat since I spent 2 years of my life working on these. Jim
