Stern tube blisters a new way to sink



So i will add on the other post but this is something i have never seen so BAD



I cut away the broken part of the tube



And made one of my famous portable machine tools in a last ditch effort to NOT cut out the tube



Which left with with a nice round 1.700 tube to eater clamp on a new log or epoxy on and reinforce it with a short piece of tube



BUT No what do i find a BIGAZZ BLISTER INSIDE the tube which kind of explains all the marine-tex i had to chip away

And its a LOT deeper than it looks in the picture


So the good news is the tool worked great and i only have to cut out another 6" of tube

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Well




Today was a GOOD DAY i came across a 1.75 diameter carbide facing tool which was GOOD as fiberglass rips tool steel a new ass and this was is made to work with hand held drill power



The hull is freaking thick in this area and i did not want to hack it up



And i had to do 1/2 from outside and 1/2 inside so the mandrel would stay supported and cut a true hole :rockon
