    Further to last post have now examined my mast step after a thorough clean
    It does not leak

    Its worn through the gelcoat at the top and about three inches into the hole

    What is the best way of repairing this?

    I am considering using layers of gelcoat repair sanded in between each coat

    Views?

    Thanks in advance

    I have done this repair several times* with gelcoat, but its better to do it like it is shown at the following link (website of 'gouvernail', a very experienced specialist in such repairs and member of TLF):

    Thats very helpful - thanks a lot

    Mine is much more worn than yours ; I am going to have to bob on a few layers I think!

    Thanks
