: Hello Bengt,
: Thank you for your answer.
: I still have some questions.
: *Assuming I do have a problem, approximately how much would a proper treatment cost?
: *Will this treatment make the laminate stronger, or will it just stop the weakening?
: *What do you mean with "if the props deforms the hull anything"? Do you mean the supports on which the ship stands? If that is the case, I thougt I saw the hull deform slightly on those spots. It is only on one side because the boat heels a little to one side.
: *To do the test, do I just put the lithmus paper inside the hole?
: *If I perform this test, what do I fill the holes with?
: Thanks for your help.
: Regards, Guido
Yes Guido you are right about the supports and the use of the lithmus paper.
Regarding filling of the holes any epoxy filler will do. Plastic Padding Marine Epoxy filler is the most suitable if it is available in your area.
It dries very fast and the hull can be launched within a few hours. Always put a tape over the filler when curing. It becoms a bit warmer during the curing, becomes softer and can seep out a little.
I never discuss prices or other business matters on this site. Please e-mail me your questions and let me know where you live.
