I have a 1974 Biesemeyer (Mouzer's old boat) and there's some trouble spots on the floor which I knew about before the purchase. Well of course I can't ignore it and need to fix it. I'm a huge fan of doing sh*t myself but the catch is, I know nothing about fiberglass stuff except, I know you mix resin with hardner (or whatever you call it) and it becomes very hard. Add some matting on there before it dries and you have some pretty strong substance... Am I right on this? Throw this stuff on plywood and you can work miracles, am I still on track? Well that's all I know about the stuff which is not enough, I don't think it is anyways.
Okay, now that I have established that I'm completely ignorant on this, can someone please help me out here. I have about a 5' X 1 1/2' of the floor that has issues. About 1 1/2' of it is bare plywood that is completely bare and feels damp and 3 1/2' of it is covered with fiberglass however the fiberglass has seperated from the plywood and can easily be taken off. Mouzer, if your reading this, does this accuratly describe my situation? Feel free to add.
From what I have been told, I need to remove the bad fiberglass and wood and replace it. If this is right, what kind of wood do I use? What kind of resin and matting do I use? And what kind of prep do I do to the floor before I lay the new wood/fiberglass in. Am I even on the right track at all or am I completely lost?
Much help is needed and any bit would be appreciated.
