My '89 is doing the same thing, I bought the West Systems materials this summer but never got around to fixing it.

I should replace my shaft log, it's been there since new and while I'm at it might pull the shaft and replace cutlass bearing too.

You may not have to replace the shaft log (it's not a part that wears) Dropping the shaft and replacing the cutlass bearings is a good idea. The shaft may get in the way of this repair anyhow. Especially if you have the Powerslot transmission.

Ok so my OCD was getting to me and I picked the boat up at the fiberglass shop yesterday. After all I've done to the boats I've restored it made no sense to let somebody else make this repair. I got started on it today and will post pics of my progress. I got the log cut out and all old fiberglass removed. I cleaned the surrounding area really well and have the log epoxied back in. I will lay the fiberglass mat tomorrow. All is going well!!

Boy, does that look familiar! I was a little intimidated by the job at first, but it's not that bad once you get into it. I used polyester for the final glass work, but I think epoxy might be better. What are you using?

Tph I agree 100 percent! I kinda freaked out at first that's why I took it to the fiberglass guy but this job really hasn't been bad! I'm using epoxy on the entire job with high density filler added to bond the log to the hull.its going really well!
