I have an awesome place. I need to go look it up. Called Fiberglass Fabricators down at Fort Washington (close to the Springfield mixing bowl on 495/95).

Last year I had a jet-ski hit me smack in the side of my '95. The guy doesn't have the nicest shop (think, old boat bone yard). But - he came highly recommended to me (It's a 2 hour drive 1 way for me). I have buddies in the auto painting business - very good at what they do. They cannot tell me where I was hit & if there was even work ever done. Top quality stuff.

Brian, This will help you get up to speed with the rod holders. That would be a rod holder next to the big arse GD. A fun thread while it lasted. Take care First MC! I would leave'em in unless they are creating a problem. :twocents:

For me, here are the directions. Although - I bet you'll be coming the other way on 495...

270
495 S (Virginia Way)
Cross Woodrow Wilson
210 S. Indian Head Hwy
5th Traffic Light - Rt on Ft. Washington Rd
3 miles, down big hill, Left at bottom of hill Warborton, follow into marina, go to boat garage. It's on the upper, Right side of the Marina.

Good luck. Get in early - he gets very busy.

thanks guys I'll try them both!! I got a quote from some one here in Balt and they told me 600-700 to fix both sides. I thought that was a little high

That seams about right. There's a lot of work. Be sure you get a lifetime guarantee. The guy I told you about gave me a lifetime guarantee of his work. He charged me (well - he charged the guy who hit me) $2200.00 to fix my crack. It was a major crack around 14 inches, then spiders going out 3'. He ground down through all but the last layer of glass. Re-built & re-shot my boat from Bow to Stern from the bottom of the boat up to the chine.

He also told me if my MC would have been a Moomba - there would have been a hole in the side of the boat instead of a crack. I had the boat back in 10 days also!

Do think they make some type of rubber (3M) step pad that I could put acrss the hole? Ive seen something before its about 12"x6" with a sticky backing that you put on the gunnel that way you can step on it to get in.. thought it might be a cheap way to cover the rod holders.. just an idea... if you got a better on let me know

That's a great idea. Heck - I may have to do that on my boat. IT'll keep people from stepping on my seats!
