One of the requests the wife has while I'm working on this project
is to remove the pipe that goes through her galley
cabinets. Easier said than done!
Truth is, I wouldn't mind doing this as well, we have 4 deck
scuppers, 2 on each side, that are constantly getting clogged up. The pipes take up space inside the boat
, and the thru-hulls represent 2 more liabilities. Plus the builder
only put 2 in, and in not quite the right spot for water
to drain so we always seem to have some water
hanging around on the side deck
that grows algea.
In thinking of how to do this, the most efficient method it would seem would be to find something oval I can use wrap fiberglass
around so as to make identical oval sized scupper pipes, 4 or 6 of them, then cut the holes in the toe rail and install them.
Would it be sufficient to glass just the part inside the boat
(inside the toe rail cavity), and then on the outside just use some epoxy
/ cabosil mixture to fair it in, or do I need to grind back the glass on the outside and glass it there too?
