Re: Fairing interior fiberglass after core replacement

Yeah, J; nice job!.

I'da been tempted to glue a thin batten of teak to the join and been done with it.
Prolly gonna go solid on my foredeck,tho. Just can'tseethe utility of a core when stiffener ribs and additional layers will accomplish the same. The original FG liner got toasted with removal, so paint it will be. I kinda likethe texpture of CSM done up in off-white.
Sidedecks areanother issue, tho. Gonna hafta gho outside for them, I believe

Re: Fairing interior fiberglass after core replacement

Wow, it amazes me how many of us are crazy enough to do this job. Great work.

I did my re core from the top, so my sanding and fairing was physically easier. I used West System with low density filler. I sanded so much my wife started calling me Dusty because every day I would come home covered.

Two seasons later, no crazing or cracking.

Re: Fairing interior fiberglass after core replacement

Skywalker,

Yes, it is amazing what we will do for our boats, isn't it? Sanding from the outside would have been a much more pleasant experience, I'm sure. The only reason I did it from the inside was because I knew I wouldn't have a cover over the boat for the entire project, so it was the only way to keep things dry. I definitely wouldn't recommend recoring from the inside if it can be helped.

I thought I'd attach another shot (the only one I have so far of the finished product with the boat mostly put back together). I'm cooking our first meal on the boat, but more importantly, once all the pieces go back on (new bulkheads, refinished trip, fruit hammock), it is next to impossible to notice that any work was done.

Re: Fairing interior fiberglass after core replacement

Wow, that's impressive, I couldn't imagine re-coring from the inside. Mine was bad enough from the top but I guess I shouldn't whine because at least I had gravity on my side.

Big kudos to you all doing it from the underside...
