    Getting ready to start repair

    I appreciate all your help and you are correct about needing a translator. For the life of me I can't understand why I should cut/replace wood if I don't have to. Moving circle still requres taking out foam. I don't know where there is an area that does not have foam nor wood. Don't have the answer

    [/IMG] if either way I am taking out white foam I don't understand why it is suggested to use the option of taking out foam and working with wood? I am trying to follow the instructions given to me and I still got it wrong. I don't care what it looks like underneath the port, I just want the...

    So it's no worst! This is the place I was told to put it! Isn't there a place where there isn't foam?

    I'm moving the inspection port slightly forward. It will intersect the circle I have now. I don't understand the reason to keep it where it is and deal with what's in the way under it. Please give me a reason not to do that. After cutting this intersecting circle which is a few inches forward, I...

    The images won't load for some reason. Is it because it's on my phone? circle is complete it just is not cutting all the way through at the back end. Is there something wrong with cutting a different circle slightly forward overlapping this one and it won't be in the way of anything? And...

    The hole is right in front of the gudgeon plate. The closest part of the circle to the g plate is where it won't cut through. The jig saw is what it is. I've researched different blades and I'm pretty sure they don't come longer. I'm about to use the circle I cut as guide and hopefully get a...

    The middle hole was ok but the back hole was not successful. The side of the circle closest to the back was obviously attached to support so now I have a cut circle still attached to the boat. I hope it's not difficult to fix later but should the circle intercept this one or in front of it?? I...

    How do I upload the image? It's not working? I'm not worried about fixing the mast, I'm thinking about the condition of the mast hole and where the water is coming in.

    Did the image post? About to cut this.... Will trace this and that should be right size? And location? There is no serial number. When cutting the back hole is there a possibility that there will be foam blocks where I cut because we don't know what year boat this is?

    The mast is bent. Also, I don't see a smaller drain hole. I really should fill up the mast hole!? After finally getting the water out of the boat.

    Getting ready to start repair

    sorry for not knowing anything at all; here's the fan, I just want to make sure this will be safe to run long term, outside under a tarp, without monitoring (I'm not at the location for maybe weeks at a time). Just plug it in and that's all that's needed? or there's one that has a high speed...

    The hole was drilled at the lowest point on the rear of the boat while the boat was upside down and filled with water. How to patch that? Now the boat is right side up, but still on the ground. I'm sure on the trailer would be better? I will search for the year of the boat. I looked up muffin...

    Thanks very much, I don't think I will get to the ports immediately and I will look at this then, but here's my crazy question today. The boat has tons of soap left on it now. I know I should rinse it off or put acetone on it. Is that urdent? Is it really bad to leave it this way until I get...

    Getting ready to start repair

    I was able to turn boat over (by making a drainage hole) and got water out of sunfish. I started the leak test. So far just found a few along the metal trim. There has to be more given the amount of water that was in there. In the meantime I was going to order inspection ports, if someone has a...
