Anyone have experience re-gluing cockpit sole? I recently sold my 1980 15-footer and just bought a '75 Montauk which is sound except for 1 1/2-sq.-ft. section on flat dseck section just fwd of the console. I think it's over wood, which feels solid, and need suggestions on how to go about cuttin it out and reattaching.

I hate it when people give me this answer, but, if you read back through the past postings you will find a lot of discussion on how to fix this. You will also find references to West Epoxy Systems and a small book that they publish called 'Fiberglass Boat Repair and Maintenance'. you can purchase this book at any marine supply house that sells the West System. This is a great little book and through easy step by step directions and detailed drawings, shows you how to make this and many other fiberglass repairs. Good luck.

I have done this in the stern of my Nauset. If you want to call me I can talk you through what I did - and of course West System epoxy is a must. As noted, there is a wealth of information on this site about this type of repair etc.
