Re: Decommissioning through hulls?

For the record I'm not considering the epoxy in the through-hull idea. I don't see the advantage over the pipe plug.

I'm leaning towards the pipe plug and leaving the through hulls in place for 2 reasons. First I might use them again. Second, I think my first real fiberglass job shouldn't be on the under-side of my hull.

Perhaps at the next haul-out, or the one after, I'll have a better idea of which ones I want to keep and I may have a few "above the waterline" fiberglass projects already completed.
