Re: wierd composites dog house...repair

Cut away all of the bad fiberglass house. Then using sheet fiberglass (from a hardware store) backed with wood stringers and cut to form an internal mold with separating wax. Then you can build up a new cabin side and top. Don't worry about the port lights because you can cut new one in after you are finished fiberglassing.

Or you can cut off the old cabin top and add carlings to the decks and build an all wood cabin. This two routes you can take and there may be a few more if you think about it. Just remember to use the KISS system. (Keep It Simple Stupid)

Re: Weird Composites Dog House . . . Repair

Cut all fiberglass (or whatever it is) away from metallic hardware - then discard F/G and salvage hardware.
