I posted some pictures of the problem area which was about 4 to 5 inches from the shaft. So I cut out the top layer of 3/4 plywood. A piece about 8 x 30 inches and screwed and epoxied in a new piece of marine plywood. I then used thicken epoxy with some 6.5 oz fiberglass cloth and covered both layers of the 3/4 plywood. I encapsulated the wood. I also replace the 4 inch plate in the cockpit seat where the leak came from. It was where the emergency rudder would connect to the rudder shaft.
Thanks for asking
I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
