Re: Replacing floors stringers and transom 1991 Celebrity

Jacques, I need fix a few small damaged areas in my gel coat that are both below the waterline and above the waterline. Do you sell a fairing coat that is easy to sand and can be tinted so I can try and get close to the gel coat color?

Re: Replacing floors stringers and transom 1991 Celebrity

Jacques, I've managed to get some air pockets under some of the tabbing I did for my stringers, (19 ft Celebrity ski boat). The air pockets are located right at the fillet area, but there is good adhesion on either side of the rest of the tabbing. I tabbed them with 3 offset layers of 12 oz cloth as...

Re: Replacing floors stringers and transom 1991 Celebrity

Jacques, I have a question about the 2 holes I mentioned in an earlier post that I need to repair from the beaching the hull was exposed to. I have read about using the 12 to 1 method of scarfing the area then using small fiberglass patches that get progressively larger to build up the damaged area....

Re: Replacing floors stringers and transom 1991 Celebrity

Jacques, you mentioned to use System Three Epoxy primer on my interior repairs. Is that a good paint for the exterior also? I think spraying the hull will give me the best looking finish. Can you give me the good and the bad of spraying v/s brushing like costs, durability, application, etc.

Re: Replacing floors stringers and transom 1991 Celebrity

Jacques, thanks for the explanation. I was hoping I could gel coat it because I didn't want to paint it due to the cost and I only have a garage that I would have to turn into a a temporary paint booth. You mentioned gel coat doesn't work well with epoxy. I guess that means I'm wasting my time and m...

Re: Replacing floors stringers and transom 1991 Celebrity

Jacques, I have 2 small holes in my keel near the front of the boat I need to repair while I still have full access to them, before I install the sole. They were caused from beaching the boat on rocks and have worn through the fiberglass. They are about 1 inch long and 1/2 inch diameter. I am using ...

Re: Replacing floors stringers and transom 1991 Celebrity

Jacques, I uploaded 2 pictures to my album gallery of the resin and fiberglass skin that remained from the inner transom. You can see the 1 inch holes that were drilled through the plywood and bedded into the fiberglass skin that was attached to the plywood. I still can't figure out how to attach th...

Re: Replacing floors stringers and transom 1991 Celebrity

No, the outside skin is fine. The only holes it has are from a couple of screws they used to hold the speedometer water pickup and water tube to the hull and of course the outdrive hole and the mount bolt holes for the outdrive. My plan was to cover the inner skin of the transom with resin and fiber...
