Jack Tar The trunk is made of 3/4" plywood glassed on both sides. The part I ripped is below the water line so leakage into the boat is not an issue. This is an open cat boat from the early sixties. It is a trailered boat so the plywood will dry out between uses. I am more concerned about long term damage. I sand blasted the center board and painted it and I'm ready to put it back in. I REALLY want to get out on the water so I may just forget about the torn glass and go sailing.

Can't get into a 3/4" slot very far with anything. I would expect that the case was fabricated and set in place with a bedding putty and glassed to the hull/bilge securely on the outside of the case.

The glass you peeled up could just be a sort of pretty it up laminate rather than a structural water proofing one.

Whats it look like?

Glassing inside of centerboard trunk.

Any tips?
I tore the glass inside the trunk while driving out a heavily rusted centerboard. The trunk opening is about 3/4 of an inch. Do they make rollers that small? I'm sure someone has had to do this before. Any help is appreciated. Brian
