I have just begun repairs on a 1970 13' Sport. I am in the process of filling in all the screw mounting holes and any other holes in the hull including a 2" one through the transom that the previous owner saw some need to make. I have done some gel coat work before and some light fibreglass work, but this is a hole all the way through the glass and foam. I mixed up some West's 105 and mixed with chopped glass and proceeded to fill the hole. I was surprised when the epoxy reacted with the foam and the foam began to expand, it actually worked out perfect where I can now put a layer of resin on the inside and on the outside, grind it down slightly and gel-coat it. My question has to do with the foam/epoxy reaction, is this normal/correct.
My next question (we'll call this number two of what may be many): Some of the railing hardware was replaced with incorrect stainless fitting and some original hardware is intack, but is fairly worn. I'm pretty sure that I can replace the missing hardware from CMI Marine, but I was wondering if it would be cheaper to rechrome or replace the other fittings (side rail supports and back up plates)
Next question is about Spectrum gel-coat:
Sorry this is so long, I appreciate any answers you guys can give me.
