Re: Weak Area in Hull

I see this exact problem in a old C&C`s to, chainplate slot leaking trough the plate and bulkhead with the top bare naked , no glass, the repair is not dificult and you have the chance to make this bulkhead stronger than before , anyway the best insurance is a surveyor, if the rest of the boat is intact and in good condition can be a good deal...

There would be no cause for a haul out for this work,- it's all interior. If you're handy with a repair yourself this can be a project without great difficulty. By Cheechako's plan, you could remove one fiberglass face of the bulkhead and remove the rotted wood; replace the core with wood again (or synthetic) and glass over..... 'no need for a professional cosmetic finish that would add to the job. I'd probably spend about ten hours on a job like this as a slow DIY guy, but professionals would be quicker. Attention should also be made to make sure that the points in the deck where the chainplates enter are sealed to prevent more water intrusion and similar prolems at other points.

Re: Weak Area in Hull

I'm not going to give you advice on what to offer, but as the others have mentioned, this is not ALL that uncommon.... It is just work.... CaptForce gave you the answers.... Figure a week of casual labor for the the first timer....

Re: Weak Area in Hull

Pretty sound advise. I just don't want to insult the guy by over valuing the extent of the damage. After the initial run through if be content paying 4k for the boat. Just don't want overpay either.

Re: Weak Area in Hull

Depends on how bad you feel for the PO, and how much you are willing to take on the problem.... Hell...I do it all of the time...

If you like the boat do it.... Cheap enough... Again... Figure a week's worth of casual work.... cutting, grinding, glassing.... For the first timer.... Couple hundred $$$ in materials...

Post asking for help with the repair and we will walk you through it....

Re: Weak Area in Hull

Here's a little piece of sailing wisdom I learned when I started out doing boatbuilding: No job is too difficult for the guy who doesn't have to do it. Good luck.

The first picture, for me, is the disturbing one. As to avoiding stress on a boat, don't bet on it, it's not under your control. Do you want to have your friends and family out on a lake when a squall explodes, then try to explain to them you hadn't quite planned on this eventuality? Pay the money for a surveyor who has some experience in evaluating a hull and rig.
I'm assuming the black spots etc are black mold not oil.... if oil then yeah, the boat's been on it's side!
OP: The Knee or bulkhead can be repaired, keep in mind though, all of them, both sides of the boat may need the same repair....

Still, for regular maintenance, be sure to check for corrosion where these chainplates pass through the deck where water could be trapped or leaking. This points need ocassional inspection and re-bedding.
