Can this be fixed? gash in side of boat

Hello,

I have been lurking for quite some time and am in the process of buying my first boat.

I have a question though about a soverel 73 30 mkIII. it was blown up against a dock and this is the result:

Interior

The rest of the photos can be seen @Shutterfly

Or they will as soon as they up load.

The split is just forward of the main shroud chainplate and about where the Head bulkhead is. It has splintered on both the interior and exterior so i assume it goes all the way through. It is about a foot below the deck.

since it is all the way thorugh it doesnt seem like one could grind it out so what could one do?

As you can see from the photos one of the lower shroud chainplates snapped and looking at the top of the boom so did the forestay.

Overall the boats in good shape with this one major wart and the price is right so i was looking for a solution that will be offshore capable that i wont have to worry about

Thanks for the info

Josh

Will possibly see conflicting opinions, but it wouldn't scare me away from the boat. With proper repair it can be about as strong as new.

You need to carefully check the surrounding area, and any other scuffs that you find. Make sure there is no hidden delamination.

Take a hand saw (drywall/keyhole type) or tin snips, or router and cut the overlapping sections, then grind back for your 12:1 and repair it like any other patch. Make sure you get any delaminated areas out, much better to do new than to try to fix delamination.

Ken.

no problem..if inside no structural stuff is affected...fix it and forget about it..

You may need an inside reinforcment...have seen worse get repaired and gone...

Merc,

Thanks for the reply. I was reading up on it in Don caseys book. Seems relatively straight forward if tedious.

There is a picture of the main shroud chain plate with two other plates sticking up does anybody know what these are for? the lowers connect to the cabin so im a bit confused They are glassed into the hull.

The first is the trio of plates sticking up. The outboard two are glassed into the hull, the third goes through and you can see the attachment on th interior in the third pic. the second shows the exterior of the boat where it seems something has popped off below the chainplate. this is directly aft of the gouge.

Unfortunately i just made the assumption about what went where and forgot to ask.

thanks

Yes, that damage can be pretty easily repaired. If the interior is accessible, repairing it from both sides is probably a good idea. It doesn't appear that there is a structural bulkhead inside that area...but when you're grinding the 12:1 bevel for the repair, you may need to glass underneath one... which means removing it may be necessary.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I do have access to the interior, and yes the split does extend forward of the bulkhead unfortunately.

still confused about those plates though! Could they have been for jib blocks?

Thanks for the replies

They certainly look like chainplates to me. Is it possible that the chainplates on the cabin were added later to replace the outboard ones?

Could be but if you notice then the lower forward would be right in line with the upper, i was under the impression the lowers generally were forward and aft of the upper. whereas the ones on the cabin trunk are forward and aft of the upper

Knothead may be correct. In the third photo, on the left, is that metal strap attach to the plate on deck?

Knot always. It's not uncommon for the forward lowers or the intermediates to be inline with the uppers.
