Uh oh..., Mariner 31 issue...

Oops, found some unpleasantness with the Mariner yesterday as we turned our attention to the topside. Was tapping the house and found a soft spot. dug the glass away and found this:






and this:





so, not wanting to do things in a half-assed fashion, we're going to cut out and replace the offending cabin wall completely.

You can see the initial cut lines here:






and here:






Not a show stopper, just a temporary setback. I supposed we could've soaked the mess with CPES and glassed it over but that's not how we roll.

Ugh, what a mess a couple of leaks can cause.

It might be interesting to the board if you could share the rough cost of repairing this mess will require...I think it goes to the "what can go wrong..." attitude we often hear when someone thinks they're getting a good deal with a cheap boat.

I'm not surprised. There is a Mariner 31 in our club that has been sold to other members twice. First owner picked her up for a song for that exact issue. The house in not a fiberglass sandwich but covered wood construction. He rebuilt the house, replaced the engine, and fixed other issues. Second owner just sailed her and ran it into the ground. Current owner just bought it cheaply and faces rebuilding the house again along with other issues caused by neglect. The Mariner 31 has lots of character but not a light air performer to say the least.

The first owner that rebuilt the house used the wrong materials and techniques if it went South again. I can warranty that our work will still be sound long after the rest of the boat gives up the ghost...

I'm thinking we'll have about 30 man hours in the repair. So it would run about $1,200 plus materials, not counting paint and paint labor.
