Re: Hull Repair

Randy and Brian: Thank you very much for your help and patience. You have answered my question regarding the patch- I need some overlap. I was about to epoxy the patch on and it struck me that I would not have a continuous layer of fiberglass with my smaller patch. This didn't make sense unless I ap...

Re: Hull Repair

I have sanded my damaged area down to the fiberglass cloth. The damage doesn't look as bad as I thought. It is not through the hull, although I believe the fiberglas either stretched of became separated from the cedar on the inside. Alsok, there is a slight soft spot on the inside that requres a har...

My Redbird is complete, and I am very pleased with how it turned out. I couldn't have done it without the expert, generous help from the members of this forum. Thanks to all who replied to my posts.

Re: Hull Repair

Re: Hull Repair

Now, the links are appearing, but no images. And, I inserted a space after each bracket, as Brian showed in his post, in order for the link to appear. Please let me know if the links work. I would still like to know how to post a picture directly into a post. [ img]https://photos.app.goo.gl/i1DjiHgU...
