I have been enjoying and learning from this site for a month now but this is my first post. I was given an early 1970's sunfish with all of the hardware and a good sail with only two quarter size holes in it. The boat was very heavy when I rescued it. I have since installed two four inch ports in the deck, vacuumed out all standing water and have had a fan blowing in one of the ports for two weeks except for the rainy days. Needless to say the boat is much lighter and if the hull were not compromised it is at a sailable weight.
I found two full cracks in the foot well and two holes in the hull where the trailer, after the wood rotted away, dug into it.
I wanted to ask if I have prepped the holes properly so that I can begin to build up the fiberglass. Installing fiberglass cloth backer in the hull holes will not be too complicated but installing backing material in the foot well is going to be more difficult. Any advice or guidance on how to proceede will be most welcome. Thank you in advance,
