I am presuming that a) you won't be rounding Cape Horn, in Winter and b) want a cheap
"fix" (even if you had the cash available - IMO would be a waste to spend on her doing things "properly").
Therefore I think you need "an innovative custom made solution"
(which others may call "a bodge"
What I would do is:-
Hull / Deck Seam:-
1) Remove the rub rail (rubber / plastic? trim)
2) Wire brush off anything loose
3) Angle grind off the distorted bits that would prevent the rub rail later being refitted.
4) Fill the seam with thickened epoxy
(not really structural - more to prevent water ingress)
5) If the flange shows any movement when you pry it with a large screwdriver - I would through bolt.....if not, I wouldn't bother.
6) May need to fill any "hollows" in the flange with thickened epoxy (so that the rub rail has something straight to lie on / be glued onto)
7) Any large gaps in the flange can be replaced with Epoxy and cloth - (maybe even over some wood roughly cut to fit), on the basis that only looking to support the rub rail and not a structural fix. The good news is that any work you do will later be hidden from sight
the rub rail - with whatever sticky stuff works on both
surfaces. May also want to through bolt if needed.
if you are seeing daylight through the seam then I would add 3 or 4 layers of Epoxy and cloth along the seam (on the inside) - that would be structural.
Given that your chainplates (the things that your shrouds attach to - which keep your mast
) are affixed to the deck important that the deck doesn't peel off the hull when under sail
......Therefore I would keep a careful eye out for any signs of movement. If you do spot anything untoward, start another thread titled "Some idiot on the internet
. All claims for damages should be forwarded to CF.com
For the stern:-
1) Given you can see daylight through
- I would epoxy a patch of cloth in the corner, from underneath (2 or 3 layers) - have fun!, odds are that will have limited access - to both clean up the surface and then affix the cloth
. Epoxy gets everywhere. Don't scratch your nose
, or beard
2) From the outside
I would fill with epoxy filler.
3) to finish off (if fussy
) could maybe shape a wooden block (or mould something from Epoxy) to match the port side corner.....or slap on a corner fender
She won't end up looking factory fresh, simply like an old boat that has been knocked around a bit - but the good news is that you won't have to be too precious about the odd future knock, and she should also provide plenty of happy hours on the water - both sailing
the other many "Joys" of boat ownership
Just buy something else for Cape Horn
