    damaged daggerboard

    thanks, I've done some fiberglass work in the past but would rather not do more if I don't have to. I like the idea of Marine Tex.

    damaged daggerboard

    I ran aground and damaged my daggerboard. Boat did not take on water and the daggerboard trunk seems to be okay. Damage seems to be limited to the board itself. Is there any way I can repair this? Is it a bad idea to try and use it in it's current condition?

    bow repair

    Wow. I was impatient and started the repair before I saw either of your posts. I may have to repair again in a couple of seasons, but for now I sanded back a bit more and applied fiberglass. Guess I'll see how that works.

    bow repair

    So I figured out why the sunfish was getting so much water when I sailed. Huge cracking on underside of bow. Question, do i need to keep sanding or have I gone far enough? The very front seems to be in good enough shape. Or do I need to sand it out and remove it? And do I just put new fiberglass...

    Sunfish dolly

    See a used laser dolly for sale here at half the price of a new one - would this work for a sunfish too?

    Is the mini block class legal? I have one now on my rope bridle.

    Traveler/bridle preference?

    I am getting ready to replace my old rope traveller with a wire one, I think both the plain wire and the one with the loop are class legal. Does anyone have a preference for one or the other, and why? thanks, Sue

    Options for a soggy fish.

    Try the first option. I did that with my boat last winter, with just two inspection ports, one up near the splashguard and one behind the cockpit. Like yours, I'm not sure what it weighed, but since two of us had trouble carrying it, 300 sounds about right. It's amazing how much lighter it is...

    Taco trim

    Does anyone know which size/type of Taco trim works best when replacing the aluminum rubrail trim?

    fiberglass repair on hull

    thanks Wayne. the video also talks about "patch booster" for thinning gelcoat and "dry guide" or "dry glide" for help in sanding. any idea where they have this? I've tried checking on the internet, but no luck on the patch booster, and since I don't know if it's glide or guide - no luck there...

    fiberglass repair on hull

    thanks Wayne, that makes perfect sense and if all else fails I can try the inspection port, but I am trying to avoid cutting yet another inspection port into the boat. I do have another question though, I've seen that gel coat repair video, and at one point it says that the top layer of gelcoat...

    Wayne, posting a wider photo of the hull, I've done a little more sanding. Can't see the holes through the inspection port. thanks, Sue
