Well just in case anyone was wondering.............After the visitors left I was being taken away for a few days R&R so I had a morning to 'mess about' as it is referred to here.
A quick cheap and cheerful job was the one for me so ignoring all advice
so kindly given I took up on G. K. Chesterton's advice
"If a job is worth doing it is worth doing badly".......or did I get that wrong?
First thing to do with a leaking boat was to drill
some holes in it...........! You see, I was careful and had a piece of wood underneath.
After vacuuming out I then poured Eze-Kote through the holes and persuaded an assistant to use the boat as one would a cocktail shaker.
Then, pleased I had done something,I went away for a few days and it would have time to dry.
Well back now and placed boat into bath a few hours ago. Result was..........water in the bilges in the same quantity as previously!
Lesson......Always listen to Doug!
Now, rather than sailing
, I have both the issue of this leak looking like 'amidships' and the business of that bow to deal with.
So will move back to the main thread.
What is the best proportion of liquid hardener to resin
? I bought some whilst away. Came without instructions
. They must have thought someone who knew what they were doing would be using it..................
