I'm currently the new carport skipper
of a 1974 venture 17 pocket cruiser
that has among it's other troubles some degredation of leading edge keel fiberglass
due to the roller on the trailer and a grounding or two at the toe.
My thought was (instead of going the old fiberglassing/sanding/fairing route
) to cut and fill with sandable epoxy
putty THEN sand and fair to the right shape, then give the whole thing a nice coat of epoxy paint
. The keel
mostly looks pretty good except for the leading edge.
It's been drying out for about a decade so it's probably ready to work on.
Fortunately the keel is less than 500 pounds so it won't be too terribly difficult to do the necessary manhandling.
Sounds bad? Thoughts or comments?
