Hole in Aerotec High Pressure Keel

Hi all,

I've got a pin prick hole in the side of the high pressure keel - as per the blue dots in this photo. I'm wondering if I need to peel it back a bit and then reglue that whole section...or just shove some glue up there on the offending bits...does that make sense? Any wisdom?

Thanks all!

Jim

I'd be tempted to try the repair like I carried out with Stormsure... still holding perfectly two years on.

Post #21 onwards here...

Hope it goes OK. If you can suspend the floor so the Stormsure can flow into the tiny hole by gravity it helps.... I was surprised how it did seem inclined to creep into the hole and needed a tiny top up where a dip formed in the Stormsure. If it will do that the repair will be loads more secure.
