Grampian 28 Engine Mounts
So this old 1975 Grampian 28 we just bought has cracked engine mounts. The engine shakes when it runs and this has been designated as the no. 1 issue to deal with before the boat is put back in the water.
What are those things made of? I'm guessing some kind of heavy hardwood blocks wrapped in fiberglass with polyester resin?
Anyone have any experiance repairing them without taking the engine out? The engine is at the end of its life but still works, so if the mounts are repaired just enough to last for a couple of years till we replace the engine I will be happy.
I can work fiberglass, wood and epoxy, weld steel or stainless. I just don't know which approach to pick since I've never worked on a boat before...
Thanks for any and all feedback...
