worn through mast step

Thread starter #1
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
