I've got a [1996] Outrage with a funny round disk screwed to the hull in the bottom of the bow locker. It looks like it was cut out with scissors and screwed down with a few #10 screws and some 5200. Anybody got a similiar setup?

I think that the disk is a cover for the foaming "port" through which the gases and propellants are evacuated during the foaming process of the hull. I don't recall, however, its being secured with screws and 5200. The circular opening is, in the boats my family has had, covered with some sort of plastic that is held in place by adhesive only. I hope that this helps.

My 1997ish Montauk has the plate glued only.
I had to reglue it.

Chuck, I realize it has been over 10-years since you posted this, but do you remember what glue you used, how did it work and how long did it last?

Was the plate a hard plastic?

If you were doing it again today would you do anything differently?

I think you win the prize for oldest thread resurrection.

And I've been here a long time.

Tom--if I remember correctly I believe we have the same boat. On my 1997 21 Outrage the sprue hole cover was peeling up. I cleaned the area up, applied a liberal amout of 3M5200, and glued [the cover] back in. I put some weight on it to keep it in place while the 3M5200 cured. Worked well for me. And yes it was a hard plastic disk if I remember correctly. I'll confirm over the weekend- haven't check it out in some time.

I've been wanting to glass that area smooth and Line-x or Rhino line the inside or my bow locker.

David, thanks, I take PayPal.

rtk, yes, your memory is good. I was thinking 4200 or 5200. Waiting on the follow up, I appreciate it.

phatwhaler, yes, mine is similar, but it has been a while since I checked it closely. I don't have any screws in mine and can't remember if it is a hard plastic or a vinyl sheet. I just remember it squishes when I stand on it after washing the locker and thought sealing it up would be beneficial. Sorry to hear that you have not gotten around to sealing yours :-)

I checked the boat last night. The cover on mine is a circular piece of hard plastic that is approximately 1/16th to 1/8th inch thick. There were no screws used for the original installation.

I just cleaned up the area, let it dry out a bit and glued the disk back in. That was a couple years ago and it has not peeled off again.

Thanks for the update, I'll be looking to seal mine up this weekend.
