The beam of the hulls on my 30' Iroquois is 3'6". Yeah, they're narrow. I don't recall the Gemini's I've been on being any wider.

About mitiempo's diagram. He's showing a two-step layering of glass, where you do a very thin amount from underneath. Then after that cures, you brush on some thickened epoxy from the top side, so...

Using filler to thicken is bad - that has no structural strength. I use woven roving, that's fairly thick to begin with, and then after everything is cured I sand down the high spots, fill with...

Old screw holes are what you fill with thickened epoxy. For bigger holes you want to grind out the edges to a 12:1 taper and use fiberglass cloth. You'll probably need to rig up something...

I'm pretty sure they don't have butyl tape at Home Depot, unless they added it very recently. Don't confuse it with tubes of butyl caulk, which is not the same thing at all.

And "block" was the...

Unscrew the plate, get out all the old sealant (sanding away what you can as well, new sealant against remnants of old sealant can leak), and squish in butyl tape. Push the plate back down, screw it...

I like Interlux Interdeck for doing non-skid. It grips really really well, and is super-easy to apply.

More tape. I use this trick with Gorilla Tape - don't know if it works for regular duct tape. Just put more Gorilla Tape on, press it down, pull it back off - it yanks the old residue off with it.

I don't like the look of Kiwigrip from the pictures I've seen. It's too much texture, visually.

I did apply Interlux Interdeck this summer, and it looks absolutely fantastic, and grips...

I agree with most of what you wrote, but all the boat yards I'm familiar with use epoxy for repairs.

I thought this whole thing was solved back in 2007? Aren't those marks from an aggressive orbital sander on the bottom paint, while removing barnacles?
