Started working on the trailer today. One step closer to get her put back in the cradle. Hopefully will start fiberglass work this weekend.

I need to see the whole trailer, but are your bunks all the way outside on the chassis rails? Is that a Mastercraft trailer? My bunks are some way inside the chassis.

I need to build the framework as pictured in your post for the prop and rudder guard on my trailer since it is completely missing.

SO could you please give me some measurments, would really appreciate it.

Can you place a board across the back of the trailer (placed on the 3" channel) and let me know the distance between the top of the metal cross piece of the prop/rudder guard and the bottom side of the board. Also if you could take a plumb bob and line it up with each bend and give me a distance from the edge where each bend is made, last measurment would be for the length of each bend.

Thanks ahead of time for your help.

Great - can't wait to see the repair.... I wonder why 3M uses sells a polyester resin for repair vs. vinyl-ester. I know expoxy is strongest then vinyl...then polyester. MIskier indicated that MC uses Vinyl-ester when building. Please post lot's pic's building my library of methods for my project boat to come. .. found this video at jamestown distributors... http://www.jamestowndistributors.com..._1441&type=pla

being a nube to repair - does the patch need a backer of some sort to reinforces the repair? I mean - once you fill the whole do make a resin/glass patch larger than the hole to keep make it all strong? My thoughts are what happens to the joint where the new glass/resin meets the old laminated class and resin.

This is so much more interesting than what I do for a living...

I have already put a piece of wax paper on the bottom of the boat. The first step will be to put a peice of the smaller weave fiber and a little resin. Once that is set then I can remove the wax paper and then yes the peices after the hole has been filled then will be larger than the hole. I do have epoxy resin to use on coats that will go on after I get the hole filled in. I will take more pictures don't worry.

No more hole!

I can now say I no longer have a beautiful boat with a hole in it. These some pictures from today. We will continue next weekend
