Above is a link to a photo album that has pictures of a poorly repaired (before I took ownership of it) 9’2 Hap Jacobs. I don’t know what model it is or anything but I fell in love with it when I bought it out in Santa Ana and surfed it in San O for a week.
There was some major de-lam on the bottom of the nose that I had tried to repair before by just injecting resin. That lasted about a year. Now I decided to remove the de-lam and just put down a new layer of glass and sanding coat. Upon my exposing the area I found that under one of the prior repairs was a bunch of broken foam. How should I go about repairing this? Should I use 2lb. density pour foam to fill in the area?
What I was going to do was cut the glass off to the rail and make a “dish” type area that I could use as a mold to hold the pour foam. Scrape the deteriorated foam off, apply the pour foam, then I would sand down the top of the rail so when I put a new layer of glass/ sanding resin it would match up.
Would this work? In what order should a lay the glass down? I have very little glassing experience so any tips and techniques I am very open to. This board rides so well so I really would like to bring it back to life again.
The other picture is a rail ding that I am working on too.
Thanks so much for any help!!!
