I was thinking since I don't have the time nor funds to rip out the bad sections that I could drill small holes in the outside and inject resin/foam in the separating area just as a temporary fix. Eventually I plan to reconfigure the deck space and add a head.
Anyone ever try this method?
Hey ALPHA and MASATS how much did you pay for your glass work and if it was a DIY job, how much in time and materials?
Thanks for the advice

Cost

I just looked up the invoices and surprised myself it costs $8,000 to do the repairs. I wish I hadn't added up the numbers, that hurt! It is worth it though! It is a great boat and I now own two of them and they work everyday. They all have the delamination and it has to do with how they were loaded and stored on the ship in addition to the problem with the diesel fuel leak.

DIY job

I did the glass work several years ago and did not keep close track of time or materials.
From memory here is a very rough guess.

Time:20-30hrs

Materials:

Resin: $500-600
Glass roving :$250
Foam:$250
Misc:$250

Cost to my health: Unknown


This is a Quick off the top of my head guess. Would I do it again yes.

Glassing logistics

Thanks a bunch fellas, looks like it will be a DIY job.
Few more questions if you don't mind, I really don't want to muff this up.
I noticed you both cut out the inner fiberglass ,in one solid piece, to access the deterioated foam. After glassing and foaming, how did you affix that inner fiberglass back to its cut out?
MASATS- looks like you used some ply wood to tack it in place, did you coat the hull side and under side of cut out both sides with resin before doing that?

If either of you recall the sequence of events for the repair and have a moment to type it out that would help me immensely. I'll probably start this section of the job in march because I will then have a buddy in town whom can assist, so until then its on with the intellegence gathering!

THANKS AGAIN GUYS!

Alpha, if your PM to Avius is tech stuff can you share please? Ribnet is lacking proper meat at the moment so anything to replace the frequent inane blethers would be a plus. Imho, of course.

I'll be documenting all the meat i get from my fellow RIBers on the 733 project thread. As soon as I start digging in to the tougher stuff I'll post pics and tips that i learn.

No plywood installed. We put the original foam back in the hull
