1977 O'Day 32 aft keel stub repair advice
I'm new to sailnet, my name is Rudy. I'm seeking some advise on repairing the aft portion of my keel stub on my boat. I purchased this boat as a someday project, its in pretty bad shape but I don't want to work on deck and the inside if the hull is not in good shape. I hope someone has experienced a similar hull failure to mine and could advise on what would be the best repair strategy to realize the repair. I have a few books of Don Casey, I'm planning on cutting around the damaged area and glassing it with epoxy resin, but the location is kind of intimidating. Please see pics of outside and inside of fracture, any suggestions?
BTW I'm a industrial engine and generator technician if my skills could be of any use to anyone, just drop me a line explaining any diesel or generator issues and I may be able to advise on troubleshooting and repair.
