    Default Bottom of bow repair.

    Can anyone tell me how extensive of a repair this would be? How much would a professional charge? I'm a pretty handy guy but because of the safety factor I would rather have a professional handle it. The hole started out as what I thought was a crack when I noticed water coming in. So I began chipping and sanding away at it in preperation for minor repair only to find out that someone along this hulls life hit something and decided to just fill it in with body filler. Any help would be grateful. Thank you all.

    I cannot get to the other side of the hole without taking the floor up (or a portion of it.

    From the looks of things #1st pic you will need to do a little more grinding and seeing that you obviously are unable to get at the back side of the damage without cutting out a portion of the floor might I suggest trying an all purpose ( Polyurethane ) foam insulation ( spray bomb / can ) which should expand and fil in the the hole giving your fabric / new glass something to roll into going with mutable layers - plus . Note -------- the all purpose foam insulation is very cheap and sold @ most big box stores and worth trying opposed to using a high density two part foam that can only be poured after it is mixed such as this Urethane Foam , Expanding Marine Polyurethane Foam and just by chance if you decide to go with this type of foam I would recommend a foam with a higher density such as # 8 LB which has a density similar to soft wood .
