    Default Advice... Delamination...

    What do i do here.... Its the same on both sides. Right underneath where the drivers and passengers legs would be....
    Only discovered today upon grinding away old carpet glue....

    Poor layup from factory? Do i need to grind it out and reglass? Or just leave it alone? I would imagine its been like that the entire time i have owned the boat.
    It is right along the outter smaller strake... Starts at the start of the strake and continues about 1 meter.... both sides.

    Is the cloth not bonded or did they just not totally soak the cloth from day one?

    If its an air pocket, you can drill some 3/16 holes through the glass, get a syringe and use just the plastic applicator part. Fill the syringe with resine (and correct amount of hardener of course)
    and inject till the air pocket is filled, works great.

    This looks very much like what I am dealing with right now with my flatbottom. I have asked for advise and have had good luck with the help on this forum. I'll post some pics so you can see the similarities.

    This is what I have found. What you (and I) are dealing with is a lack of resin saturation on the top or finish layer of cloth. Pick a spot and get after it with a sander, after you smooth it out pour some alcohol (rubbing not drinking) on the spot. That will let you "see" what the lamination looks like underneath. I was close to dispair until realizing that all I was looking at was a bunch of hard work
    with the D/A. Its a lot of work, but mine is coming along nicely.

    I think what you will find is about the same. Keep us informed and good luck.

    Hey mate , please do not take this the wrong way because that is not my intention , First off it looks like poor workmanship ( Laminator/ or a surface / fabric ,that was not wetted out properly ) or a lack of .......if you know what i mean ,and have you tried to break the surface at all just to see how bad it really is , and from the looks of things i can almost bet it is only on the surface ( finish fabric which is either 6,8 , or 10 oz ) and with that being said sometines that fabric can be a real pain to work with for some people or the in experienced , and if you do not mind me saying this ~ i know if that was my boat considering all the hard work and time you have already put into the old girl , i would go ahead and repair the area of concern at this point in time just because of that reason alone . Just a quick mention and that is ...................................you really need to pat yourself on the back for a job well done considering this will be a walk in the park for you .

    After viewing your pics again i notice a small amount or area that is somewhat blackish , and could there be a little bit of rot going on in those areas that seem to look like small stringer's or some sort of support for the hull .
