Re: First centerboard vs. rock experience

There is a product called Marine Tex which is designed for underwater repairs to fiberglass as well as many other great uses aboard a boat. If you have no major water intrusion into the board, I'd just use the MT to build a patch which can be easily sanded and fared to become a perfect repair. I would liberally use acetone to remove any moisture before patching.

Thanks!

Thanks for all the replies here. I removed the centerboard last night without issue (although the access hatches on the centerboard trunk seem to have been cut too high, making it difficult to remove the board bolt). I'm heading to West Marine to get supplies today and should be back in business soon.

Thanks again everyone.
