leak from P bracket repair
I launched on Saturday and noticed a steady trickle of water inside the boat coming from the P bracket. I have a Sirius 28 and the P bracket is inserted into a slot in the hull and is then fixed in place with horizontal bolts. This is then epoxied/finerglassed into a nice little mound (about 6-8 inches in diameter) to cover the whole thing. I had my boat mechanic come last night and try some epoxy designed for use in wet places and he told me this morning that it was not gripping. His solution is to motor the boat to toronto to have it lifted out, let it dry and redo. I would like to avoid this if I could as masting is this coming weekend.
any ideas on alternative repair strategies????
any one try JB WaterWeld?
I am not really from Toronto
