GlobalHopper is on land for our first haul as it's keeper.
This has been good for the most part, but has raised a few questions and problems that we are now attempting to figure out.
was saturated and we needed to tap it like a Maple Tree and are attempting to dry it out, I think there is a pocket or separation inside the keel
( the plan is to pressure inject an epoxy
and glass goo to fill the void.. Has anyone else seen this?)
Both Keels have hole in the lower aft section, is that for a hurricane
tie-down or something unique to our boat
Saildrives used to have a rubber boot to keep the raw-bar from moving in, does anyone have a picture or link to what this should look like?
We are planning to fix some of the gel-coat, does any one know the color or what the approximate mix of pigments?
We'll be back under the boat
in the morning scraping off the 15 layers of paint
and discovering more remnants of her past repairs
Thanks in advance,
