Re: So Memorial weekend this happens......

I got the hole glassed shut.
I laid up a layer of glass mat on the outside, then screwed a piece of plywood over it.


Then from the inside I laid up 2 layers of roving, and 1 layer of glass mat. I used 4 layers of glass mat to reattach the v-berth shelf to the hull.


The next day I removed the plywood.


And put on a layer of epoxy thickened with fairing filler.


Now to sand it down and paint.

I am guessing that the background is an autobody shop.

Nice work.

No, mechanical repair. I've done body work, but you probably wouldn't want me to do it on your car. If I was a real body guy, I would be sailing already.

Fiberglass repair was learned out of necessity since I bought a boat out of what might as well been a junk yard.

And thanks BTW. I try.

Re: So Memorial weekend this happens......

I finally got the boat painted. I spent a huge amount of time stripping and repainting the deck. That's a real PITA, and I'm still not done putting hardware back on.

I had to rush the paint job because the lake is running out of water and I was on a borrowed trailer. My friend needed his trailer back in a bad way, so instead of rolling and tipping like I did last time, I sprayed it. I never have liked the look of a sprayed boat. It's just too hard to keep a wet edge, no runs, etc. So as I suspected, I hated it.



So I did what the interlux rep told me I couldn't do successfully. I polished it. First with 1500 wet sand on a rubber block, then a buffer with a coarse pad, then a fine pad.



Until the reflection looked like this:



The repair is on the left side of this picture.

Wow, very nice end to a not so fun beginning. Good job on taking care of your boat.

Re: So Memorial weekend this happens......

Thanks guys. It just looked so awesome after I painted it the first time, there was no way I could let it go looking the way it did. So it only took me 2 1/2 days to get it this far. The other side isn't polished yet. I have just a little more work to do with the 1500. It will get there soon though. Maybe tomorrow or thursday.

Now if the deck hardware would just install itself.
