Ok so... much has happened since I last posted. In short I finished my work and got down to sailing every free moment I could find. This turned out to be something to the tune of 2 - 4 days a week with lots of camping trips in there. I continued to take pics so I'm going to post the remaining repair pics and just tell about each step of the way. Then I'll start a new post for the various trips I have pics of. So here it goes...
I left off last post having stripped the keel of each hull and from there I let them dry under cover of a inexpensive tarp carport bought on Amazon for something like 80 bucks. It was excellent for the 5 - 6 months that I needed it and it lasted for about 4 more before the tarp material degraded to the point of literally falling apart at a touch. Still not a bad buy for a temporary project and now a have a steel frame for a quick green house over my garden in the spring.
The de-lamination at the keel weakened the glass quite a way up the hull side in some places. I stripped anything away that came freely since it was no longer providing any of the strength or protection it was meant for and roughed up the wood underneath and allowed it to dry. None of the wood felt wet to the touch but laying plastic wrap sealed over various sections revealed that moisture was indeed escaping. So I continued to let it dry and occasionally sprayed the wood with acetone to aid the evaporation action.
After a month or so of drying I painted each hull with Raka epoxy sealing the wood. I then layered 2 layers of 6oz fiberglass cloth overlapping the old glass on the hull sides to ensure a complete seal and as much strength as possible. Next I glued down a layer of 1708 biaxial tape along the keel edge to take the abuse of repeated beaching and/or any accidental groundings. This made the keel quite a bit beefier and much much stronger. There are a few other pics I'll add to show different angles and stages of the glassing stages.
Next came the beams, decking, and well basically everything else. All of it was thoroughly cleaned and prepped and painted in Interlux's 4208 Hatteras Off White. I seem to have lost alot of the pics taken of this process and not many were taken during this stage as is was the end of May and the weather and wind were really nice. My focus was to finish and get my butt out on the lake sailing and that's what i did. My following post will be on many sailing trips I took at the lake over the summer. Sorry it took me so long to post.
