I don't know if this has been addressed before or not but my search has not located anything.
We are looking at a 1979 37' Fisher motorsailer
that has cracks at the hull
seam at 4 of the 6 scuppers, two are allowing leakage into the hull
primarily in the quarterberth area.
Contacts made via the Fisher
Owners site suggest that this is a known flaw with the Fishers although the reply from Northshore Yachts denied any knowledge of the problem.
Several replies from owners indicated they apparently had success grinding out the polyester "bondo" originally used in the seam and replacing it with an epoxy
. It would appear that the deck
tub/molding includes the inner surface of the bulwarks and that the seam is also vertical at each of the "scupper areas and then covered by the caprail at the top edge of the hull and deck sections. Hope this description is understandable.
I'm guessing that an end to end repair of this seam would be a challenge to say the least. Any comments would be most welcome.
