Re: working on my Alberg (Sea Sprite 23)

Very nice work!

A couple of tips :

If you add colloidal silica to the epoxy, it won't run. You can shape it like wax.

When you drill new holes, you should drill them oversize, fill with epoxy, then drill holes for the bolts. This way the core is sealed from moisture.

Re: working on my Alberg (Sea Sprite 23)

all well and good.. but I am not using epoxy. I am repairing her using actual glassfibre. Also, early sprites like mine are not cored at all. Everything is solid 'glass

In the end all that matters is how fully you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things that did not belong to you -buddha
