whats the best way to fix holes in the bottom of the boat?
just lifted my new to me boat off the trailer to replace the bunks and low and behold i found why the seats were the most secure i have ever sat on. some ass hat drilled right through the bottom of the boat and mounted the brackets that way. they were exactly under the bunk so i didnt see them at purchase. called the previous owner and he said the seats were done when he bought it so he had no idea. he did say that the boat never took on water. thats good i suppose but still wrong. what should i do about this?
glassing it is what i would have assumed. quick question before i go looking for supplies. what should i use?
is this a case for 1708 mat and epoxy resin or would some fine weave mat suit this better with a poly resin?
and also how far out should i feather it and how deep a gouge should i take?
i had the same problem with my sleek...i used marine-tex...that stuff is bad ass...i am one of those people that loves choppy water and jumping wakes...the more air the better...love it...with that being said...marine-tex will hold up to what ever you through at it.!!!!!!!!!!!!
IDK either. ill sand it next time i flip the boat over and see if it resembles anything i know. it looks like bondo for car dents. its also all the way around the intake as well so that will get the once over
the more inspection it gets the more i feel its inadequate in the keel. for the most part the outside looks to be in decent shape. just scratches through the paint in some areas. when the light is shown at it however, some places its very faint, and others its as if its just clear plastic for the bottom. is there any aprox thickness recommended for boat keel, or is it a per application process?
