This message is for all you ferro
owners or builders out there that have any experience with hull repairs
. We have the chance to take on a huge project
of reconditioning an abandoned Sampson C-Breeze. I have read everything I can get my hands on so far. I am waiting for 'Ferro-cement Boats' .by Colin Brookes, to arrive by mail. And I have tried writing it's author directly via his forum, without answer.
The wooden pilot house is rotted through and the interior
is waterlogged. We're looking at a total rebuild
on the inside. The hull
have several superficial repairs
to make before painting, which really don't seem worrisome. But there is one area at the back edge of the keel
behind the rudder
which is very rusted. We have a couple of photos and need to know how one would go about repairing this or if such damage in such a location is worth the effort. We have been unable to find a professional surveyor
experience within 1000 miles, so the work will have to be done by us.
