Hello All,

As I have said in previous posts the floor of my 1985 Outrage 18 has come delaminated in several places. I know how to repair it by drilling two holes in the deck and inserting epoxy into one hole until it comes out the other and then laying sand bags on the area and letting it dry. Although I feel that I could possibly do this correctly, I also know that I could seriously scr@w it up!

I decided to start by calling a dealer. I called Connors & O'Brien in Pawcatuck and they said "maybe in the fall". Well - I want to use my boat this summer and would like to fix it before hand!

Here is my problem - my trailer is not registered (and needs a bit of work to use for long distances) and I am in Stonington, CT. If anyone knows anyone who lives nearby and would like to earn good cash for some weekend work please let me know. I am going to go to a couple local boatyards - Dodsons (where I used to drive the launch) and Noank Shipyard - to see if anyone wants the work. I would rather go with someone who someone here recommended.

Also - is $25 an hour cash + materials a fair offer? I know that it is a lot cheaper than at a yard but the yard takes most of what you pay them.
