I have a twice-snapped board that I picked up and it was in the middle of being fixed for the 2nd time.
THe middle had alot of small filler spots on the bottom, some resin and no cloth yet.
The top had a layer of cloth and laminating resin but no sanding resin so the cloth was visible and just not complete.
I put a HUGE triangle of 6oz cloth ( from west marine D’OH! ) and glopped on a bunch of marine resin ( D’OH!! )
then i put sanding resin on top and bottom and sanded it as well as i could, just to get it in the water.
it still has a huge delam bubble on the top and a small spot at the fin that was taking on water.
last night i sanded it with a drill and 4" circular attachment. OH BOY. i cut down to the foam in a couple places, probably because i’m not sanding right.
is the circle supposed to be flat while sanding? should i have a bigger/thicker foam pad so it will stay flat easier?
A bigger problem, when they put the resin on, and when i laminated, the board wasnt level on the bottom. it’s not SUPER bad but it does have kind of a “waist” or dip all thruout the middle, where the snap was/is.
is there a way to level this without adding too much weight?
Do i have to cut out the cloth and resin, put some spackle on the foam to reshape it, then put the cloth and resin back?
or can i level it with resin+qcell?
If i remember, i’ll get some pics and put them up.
The other problem i have is i’m short on $$. I have @ 1/4 gallon of sanding resin and a few oz of catalyst and 2 pieces of 6oz cloth that will fix the tail bubble I already cut off.
For the deck delam, i was told to just cut it open and fill it with some resin, maybe qcell mixture, and seal it back down with the original decking.
thanks in advance, i’m sure this is all over the place, welcome to my brain.
