For your advice
To add to my "Ooops This Voyage Ain't Going Well" emergency supplies I am wanting to get something to cover a blown out hatch / window etc, or general purpose large hole problem, to stop water ingress.
I'm thinking of a 1 meter x 1 meter sheet (40 inches x 40 inches) of 800gm Woven Roving. (see link below)
Alternatives are 600gm or 81gm
Price is pretty negligible and takes up little room on board.
I know nothing about boat building
apart from normal boat maintenance.
My kinda scenario:
Long passage over 1,000 nms and a wave breaks off, smashes etc one of 13 opening hatches or 3 large deck windows. Resultant water ingress or clear danger of it.
Cover hole with any firm board, timber, door etc and lay over fibreglass matt and splatter with resin which I normally have more than 2 litres aboard, West system 300
Deck would be wet so resin would need to adhere wet polyester deck.
Needs to remain in place for, say, 2 weeks till I gain the coast.
Does not need to be water tight but reduce water ingress to what the pumps can handle.
Does not need to look nice. This is for emergency only.
What different method could be used?
Thanks for your thoughts
