As I am reparing the entire boat should i cut the floor were the console is attached. Refiberglass the entire section because the holes and floor are old and wimpy almost frayed and shredded. I asked in the past if anyone could e-mail me a picture of the back of their boat by the drain hole so I can see how to repair my boat when I do it.

thanks

You are doing it again, Joem. You must attach new questions on the same boat, etc. to the old posts on the subject, or we wont know what you are talking about. Your post should have been a "reply" on the thread that JimH assembled from your previous questions. This post tells us nothing about your boat, your problem or any previous advice you have gotten.

We want to help, but you are making it very difficult.

A picture of my boat would be useless to you unless yours is a '80s Montauk. Only a picture of the earlier 16'7" hull would do you any good.

Joem I know your dilemma, maybe we can try to help each other and we mite get some help from the more experience people on the forum.

I have a 19'10'' outrage 1979 hull that needs a lot of work any type of pics or info on this type of hull would be greatly appreciated in restoring the BurntWhaler.

I don't think by e-mailing you pics of the back of my boat it would help! But if you want I would be more than happy to do.

As far as the floor what I would do is bore out the holes, if holes are to big after finished add foam and then glass it with mating but remember when using the foam it expands a lot so practice first! What you want to do is drill the bad areas out till you get good material and then foam it (let it dry first), have precut mating to cover the holes, you know small (size) to bigger, but don't use to much! Remember you want to sand as less as possible so lay the mat nice and smooth. I hope this will help. My .02cents
