Re: Re-core rotten deck cover

Thanks [Phil]. I called a local marina with a very reputable fiberglass shop for a ballpark estimate to fix this, and they quoted $4,500.

So, if I end up with the boat, I'll be doing the repair myself.

Re-core rotten deck cover

I'm looking at an older 25' Whaler and the hatch covering the fuel tank has too much flex, is clearly rotten, and needs to be fixed. I tried the search function here but couldn't find much on it, but I'm not sure I'm using the proper search words. Is there a thread, or a place that you guys can poin...

My 1989 Outrage 25 Cuddy with Whaler Drive is currently powered with twin original Johnson 150-HP outboards.

Took the new 15' out for her maiden voyage. With myself and girlfriend, she hit 32mph. The engine is mounted all the way down, so perhaps the 48hp can be raised, but there's no tach onboard so I don't know if it's the right prop..

All in all, not bad.
