    Screw holes that go all the way through the fiberglass

    Thank you for your responses! These holes are from what used to be the anchors that held down the coaming. I was considering filling them and redrilling holes, but I think I am going to use bigger screws with nuts and washers to hold the coaming to the deck.

    Screw holes that go all the way through the fiberglass

    I'm restoring a 1970 something sunfish and I have screw holes in my boat that are shot all the way through. I have filled all of the other holes with epoxy and I'm not sure what to do with these. I think that putting a sheet of fiberglass over the top is a bit excessive but im not sure what my...

    Painting My 1970´s Sunfish

    I plan on fixing a hole in the deck, and i have some screw holes to patch up. But then I think I will be ready to paint. The bottom of the boat is rough as well, but I didn't want to fight the trailer yesterday for pictures. But luckily it seems to be sound. Thanks!

    Sunfish drainplug and/or port?

    Sunfish drainplug and/or port?

    Wjejr - Thank you so much! I will greatly consider adding a viewport as you suggested. Charles - I have not air tested my boat yet. I have just recently gotten it and have done very little. Do you recommend I do that, and if so, how should I? I will try and get pictures later today

    Sunfish drainplug and/or port?

    I´m trying to restore my 1970s sunfish and I´m worried of past water damage, as I have no idea what it´s been through in the past. I´m contemplating adding a view port so that I can look inside and check it out, but I´m afraid of messing up or damaging the deck. I also want to add a drain plug...

    Painting My 1970´s Sunfish

    I am also confused about any work that may need to be done to the gelcoat and how that applies. The current paint job is really rough and was done poorly. I´m hoping to get a clean glossy finish.

    Painting My 1970´s Sunfish

    I am an experienced laser sailor, but I have recently got a sunfish from the mid-1970s and have yet to sail it. I ran into some important screws being rotted and rusted and so I am trying to restore it before i take it out. I want to paint both the deck and hull but I´m getting lost on what I...
