Minor hull delamination

I am looking at purchasing a 1988 Hunter 30, that has a roughly 12 inch diameter minor hull delamination just below the waterline. I know it is difficult to predict how much repair would cost, but does anyone have a ballpark range?

Re: Minor hull delamination

Very ballpark....

I assume that there is no access to the hull from the inside, and the hull has not been painted...

1 Day to cut and grind out damaged glass (highly variable depending on the extent of the damage).
0.5 day to set up form and prep.
0.25 day to apply laminate.
0.25 Day to fair the laminate.
0.25 day to apply gelcoat
0.5 day to fair and polish gelcoat.

2.75 days*8 hours *$80/hour + $200 in material = $1960--- So budget k$2.5

As itís below the waterline you should be able to shave of the time and cost of the gel coat, but will have to ad some expense for epoxy barrier coat.

Re: Minor hull delamination

Consider that if the repair has to be made from the outside, it may be difficult to ever match the existing hull color on an old hull. Which will mean the boat always looks "repaired" unless you literally have that entire side of the hull repainted/gelled. Which is kind of a can of worms, why stop at just one side...

If you can get access from the interior, even if that's a PITA, it may be the better way to go long-term.

Why would he repaint/gell the entire side of a boat for a repair made below the waterline?
