If you have a tip on mounting a berkeley pump inlet would you share? I have cut the hole in the hull, now just trying to do a "build up" around the inlet to get a good seal. (the pump inlet mating flange has up to a 1/2 inch gap as it sits in the hull. I assume fiberglass, but how have you performed the build-up of fiberglass to match the inlet metal?
I was never good with clay as a kid and sculpting is not my thing - LOL.
I figure I can just start laying mat, but getting a perfectly shaped surface will be tricky. Maybe wax paper on the pump inlet and stick it in place as it dries?
