What is the cause of the leak? You might want to check for lightning damage, since a hole near the waterline could have been the exit point for lightning.

I would tend to agree. The underwater products from Progressive Epoxy Polymers have been in use for some time. They now have more than just the original Splash Zone:

I am curious though. How large is the hole and why have you been unable to get a watertight repair?

Bock Marine about 10 miles up Adams Creek. Ask for Kenny and tell him I sent you.

Help for small hole in hull near Beaufort, NC

Hi,

I have a small sailboat (22 foot) that has a small hole in the hull right around the waterline. I have tried repairing it myself using off-the-shelf epoxy, but I cannot get a 100% watertight seal.

Unfortunately, I think I need more experienced assistance.

Are you aware of anyone in the Beaufort, NC area who can offer such assistance? I understand this will be for a fee.

As an FYI, my boat is currently located at Olde Towne Yache Club if that helps.

Thank you
