Ok so I bought an old whaler from the original owner and it has been cared for but needs work. I have limited fiberglass experience but am mechanically inclined and have wprked with the stuff before. With that said I have read many of the topics about water intrusion which the boat has from not properly sealed screw holes on the seats and the batter box among other sources. Also there is some delamination of the glass from the foam in the bow and under the floor. First is this somethin you can drill holes in inject with epoxy like a west system through syringes and will that readhere the glass to the foam. Also looking to repaint both the outside and interior of the boat and am a little confused. To refinish a hull outside first I know you have to take all remnants of the old bottom paint off andrough the surface so the new paint will adhere but what is proper procedure for refinishing a hull as I have ordered the west system manual but want some real experiences from other people who have donethis before. Also jus t graduated college so I am doing this on a budget but want to do it right. Any suggestions or qualified people I can call would be appreciated.
