Location: Melbourne, Australia Boat repair hey guys, I'm pretty new to the forum but we've been in the boat repair industry for years now.
Location: Brisbane Repair work I do not see that repair as being particularly difficult at all.
Location: maine i wish ALL jobs were as easy as this one.i'm trying to fig how you can be a boat repair biz, but ya first thought was to buy a hull? Location: Ohio TO ALL , The man is asking for help,is there structeral damage to ribs and stringers?or other super structer,,obviously so or the deck would not need repair ,,more pics please,,this is not a simple glass job ,,,,what year is this boat? I'm pretty sure they would have given A-white something close to a walk-through on the repair of such a thing, had it been a numb-nut like me (i.e. Location: maine if his post is true he dont need our help,,,,,thats what is trying to be said.
Location: Denmark Hmm, sounds more like a parts-pusher to me, SamSam, but then again, I am no tradesman, nor a repairer. Hell, this I'd even be willing to try myself, as the crack isn't in some weird place, where mathematical skills were involved.
Check for delamination, remove any and all delamination, repair or replace stingers, and add fibre glass and epoxy as per the Gougeon Brothers' bible. Perhaps that would be a stupid approach, but as an educated *******, that is the first approach I'd make. Then, after researching, I'd ask questions after I had outlined my approach to the guys on these boards. Location: maine well heres his web page,,,,,,you allz tell me who's right???

When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. You can see here the rear skin of the boat has been mechanically removed to gain access to the transom. Building a small fishing boat is a relatively easy exercise and plenty of small fishing boat plans are available free for download on the Internet. Fix Idea #1: Turn the boat upside down and lay a welding blanket between the seat and the bottom of the boat to keep the styrofoam from igniting or melting while using the torch to heat the aluminum. Problems I foresee: I am afraid the welding blanket will not be able to shield or reflect the heat away from the styrofoam enough to keep it from igniting. Problems: I do not own a rivet gun large enough to handle the large rivets that would be needed to put seat back in boat. Any ideas or suggestions, I am on a tight budget here and cannot afford to send it to a repair shop.
Now that the weather has warmed back up I have moved the boat outside and have begun restoration again.
Due to my lack of attention, my idea of brazing the crack in the hull is not going to work until the seat is removed. Location: Earth Drilled the heads off the rivets this afternoon and removed the seat to get to the damaged area.


Location: Earth This past week I have been stopping at different places to get prices on materials I will need. I also stopped at a local paint supplier and found Mar-Hyde single stage self etching pretreatment primer for aluminum. I inspected the trailer tongue much closer and found that there is some severe damage to it. Location: Earth So in this previous week I have taken the boat to a welding shop to have the crack fixed. Location: alabama, USA Since you got the boat from your grandfather it may have enough sentimental value to you to justify any expense, but you need to be aware that a lot of small aluminum boats are not built out of marine grade aluminum. The approach the local shop did on the doubler plate was probably the easiest way to repair the crack. To answer your question, the ribs are standard straight extrusions and bent as required by the manufacture.

We recently had a job come in to repair a Whittley Sea Legend 5.0 (Australian Manufacturer) the damage is pretty major and we considered purchasing a new hull for the craft, but had no luck in getting hold of one.


Although if I owned Whittley I'd be reluctant to supply hull moldings to a guy looking to buy molds! If one have been in the repair business for years, he ought to know a thing or two about boat repair. Very few operations specialize, but are forced to do a variety of repairs, mechanical, electrical etc.. If you are looking for an inexpensive way to get out on the water for fishing or rowing why not consider building a small boat.
The crack lies directly under one of the two seats that has styrofoam packed in it for boat boyancy. Yesterday and today I began removing the 4 old layers of paint which consisted of (Primer, Paint, Aluminum roof paint, and yet another coat of exterior paint).
The middle seat is riveted to the bottom of the inside hull, so I guess I will be drilling out the rivets which should be a whole ton of fun? While I am at it though I am thinking of removing the front seat and the rear seat, the rear brace which is attached to the aft and refinishing the inside as well. When the boat is sitting on the trailer the crack is sitting directly on the middle roller which is a flat roller instead of a V shaped roller.

It is crushed in on the bottom, it is twisted and has a split in one of the bottom corners. Allowed the crack to be sealed on the outside and filled on from the inside using the applied angle as a backing plate for the filler. There have been recent cases where commercialy produced aluminum boats, after being launched and re-trailered in salt water, had pitting through the hull within weeks.
I don't know of replacement parts as you might think of them, but it's probable the extrusions are still available. I was just fishing for ideas on how some of you guy's would go about repairing the hull and deck, strength-wise and appearence. Simple in design most small boats use very little in the way of materials and can be built in a few weeks if not days. Repairing, restoring and prolonging the life of fiberglass boats with WEST SYSTEMA® Brand Epoxy. The exterior is just about done, I still have to wire brush the exterior of the hull to finish cleaning the paint off of it. Over the years the boat has flexed and stressed enough in the area that it cracked, so I will be replacing that roller.
These can be bent to fit, but riveting them in is a bit difficult for the backyard repair person.
If the job is such a simple one, not particularly difficult, easy, answer his question and quit the insults. Sealed head pop rivets might do, though finding the right size might prove troublesome and the size is key.
If this is the result of the inexperienced asking the experienced, an imbecile can figure out why skilled tradesmen are becoming fewer.
