Re: Wood Hull Repair Toredo Worm

Then you have a bunch of epoxy filled worm holes that do not expand or contract like the surrounding wood nor do they move. Also, all you're doing is setting up stress points within the planking. Please don't invite me aboard your boats out of sight of land, regardless of how nice a guy ya are.... Hell, I won't even let my guys set bungs of different species in planking because they move at different rates. The very last thing I want in a wood boat we've worked on is dozens, even hundreds of unnatural stress points just waiting to split a plank.

Re: Wood Hull Repair Toredo Worm

That would be fine if one has unlimited time and money-however EPOXY is a godsend for keeping old wood boats going, Perhaps you have a lot of internal stress points starting to crack.

Next get some wood preservitive from a building store -the green stuff copper based-paint it on all worm damaged ares -next get some liquid WEST type epoxy and work it into the holes and surronding areas----this will act also as a primer for next step---which is to get 1:1 mix epoxy glue-load it into a caulk gun and squirt it into all worm holes -then screed smooth on outside. Noe paint wit usual antifouling but use a primer first as antifoul doesnt like to stick to epoxy. The epoxy will act like reinforcing rivets and boat will actually be stronger than ever..... DO IT!
oh great , one step sideways and 2 steps backward

Re: Wood Hull Repair Toredo Worm

Hi all,

The OP has his boat at our yard. Just so everyone knows, we can get mahogany all day long suitable for this job from a local wood supplier. Seems to run $7-$9 per board foot, depending on the species. We have a carpenter on call who built many of the shrimp boats one of the previous posters mentioned. Our guy has literally a lifetime of experience building wooden boats. Peter, we have your back. None of this is rocket science. Enjoy your time in Italy. When you get back, we can hook you up with whatever you need. (and by the way, all the parts and equipment you are having shipped here are safe and sound, stored up in our loft.)

Reminds me of the scene in the cartoon Mighty Mouse when he flys in to where the trouble is and sings..."Here I come to Save the Day!!!"

Nice one Anchors Away!

I love this forum...

What's your opinion on the op's intended method of repair?

Re: Wood Hull Repair Toredo Worm

I haven't heard him say exactly what his intended method of repair would be, or even a definitive damage assessment. In reading his posts, it sounds like he's still in the information gathering/idea-chasing-down stage. So far all I know of his intended method of repair is that he seems interested in exploring all the options before he does anything, which seems like a sound approach.

With all that said, I will add that I think you have given very sound advice. I always read your posts, and often learn things. If you are ever in NC, please stop by the yard. We have a hot-vac like yours, and we do some topcoat work that we are generally very proud of.

A very proffesional attitude. Sounds like he's in good hands. Exploring all the options is great, and I don't blame him for not wanting to listen, since he doesn't know a bunch of people on the internet from Adam. Just seemed like he was in a big rush to get confirmation that epoxying the wormholes is the way to go.

Cannot believe you reading this post.
Good to hear from you Chris and anchors away.

Re: Wood Hull Repair Toredo Worm

I understand this is an old thread, but does anyone know how this adventure turned out?

I really enjoy reading these types of threads, but it is just a little annoying when you don't get to hear what eventually happened. I looked up the OP's website and he apparently charters this vessel he was preparing to repair. Maybe he could chime back in and let us know what method he eventually chose. Pulling the plank seemed the only logical conclusion to me.

I also own a wooden boat (strip plank) and would be interested in the outcome.

Thanks.
