reglass the lazarette?

The work continues. Sailing Bros has me inspired.

This is my lazarette. Dirty and peeling. Do I chip it all out and lay new glass and epoxy?

Re: reglass the lazarette?

Why more glass? Is the layup weak?

Id be for a cleaning with soap and water, light sanding/scraping where there is no adhesion, and painting with a hard paint.

Re: reglass the lazarette?

Is that only paint cracking away sailmonkey or is it glass as well? Because I like the sand, clean, paint option.

Glass is sound throughout boat.

Its hard to tell from that photo, but it looks like debonded gelcoat, or very thick paint.

I would be EXTREMELY surprised if there inner layer of glass was delaminating and cracking up.

I would just scrape up the loose stuff and paint away.

Re: reglass the lazarette?

Same as mine. Just scrape it and paint it would be my advice. If you’d like to practice your technique, I will offer up a couple cockpit lockers for you to hone your skills lol!
It appears to be a miserable job which I managed to put off for yet another year. I’m hoping it’ll all fall off if I can outwait it...
