Hi guys,

A sailor mate of mine is looking for a fibre glass repairer preferably in the Melbourne or the Victorian Central Highlands area (Kyneton etc.)

If anyone knows one can you send me a PM or post here please?

Thanks
Ed

What is the repair? Is it major?

It is not that hard to do it yourself and there are lots of YouTube instruction videos.

He told me that they are minor repairs. The worst apparently is a champagne cork size hole in the transom that may have been the location of an aerial.

Place a piece of laminex scrap or wood scrap placed through the hole with a piece of wire through it to pull it tight.

Epoxy glue the backing bit in.

Wait for it to set.
Then use gelcoat repair putty ($30 Supercheap Auto) to fill the hole. Sand when dry. There are fancier ways but this will be fine for an above the waterline hole in a TS.
