OrangeQuest and Capt. UB,

thanks for the kudos and hopefully you won’t ever need to have to make a similar repair. Luckily this is a minor repair. And, the repairs are in line with how I fabricated the chine and hullbottom, so feel good that it will be a durable repair under normal circumstances. I plan to post more once I full complete the repair. But that may be a couple of weeks out.

Breaking out the resin, wood flour, etc sure gives me the itch to want to build another boat. :D

Well done Sir! That repair came out clean!
