Great job! And now you can sleep at night knowing it was done right.

That's right! That's a big reason that I went and got the boat back because I knew if I did it myself I would do it the right way and would feel good about it. Thanks for the support!!

How did you get the log off? did you just cut around the edge and pry it off?

Mike after I ground the fiberglass mat around the log off it lifted right out so im guessing the original adhesive had deteriorated and that's why it was leaking water.

Yea I don't know what kind of adhesive was there originally but I epoxied it back in with a thick bead using high density filler in the epoxy resin mixture. It should give no more problems.

Third layer of fiberglass mat done. Will install new packing material tomorrow and take it to the lake. Really a straight forward simple job. I will pick up some bilge paint this week and cover repaired area.
