Bow Repair

– we ran into a dock and a floating log in the past month.

First, I cut out all cracked and splintered fiberglass and wood:

Taped the area and made a little work space:

Sealed the wood with epoxy, then filled the rest with epoxy-based filler:

Took a little break after all that work:

Sanded smooth and washed with solvent:

Painted it black:

Painted the bottom paint:

Changed the lower unit oil:
