Re: broken bow with bad fix

Does not sound good, without pics the imagination runs wild. I think you should remove anything not tightly attached and fair. House screws?? assume drywall type must GO no place for them on a boat.
Is it the entire bow section hull and deck?
If yes then make a form slightly below the surface of the hull, build up from the inside then remove the form and finish up till flush. Do the deck last.
