Two of our easiest and quickest designs to build, DRIFT PRAMS let you reach fishing holes bigger boats must pass by.
By virtue of STITCH-&-GLUE construction, weight and cost are bare-bones yet maintenance and deterioration are virtually eliminated.
Eventually I want to completely strip it back to bare wood and re-coat with epoxy and paint or whatever is the proper thing to do but for now I would just like to fix the rot and the cracks to stop it leaking so we can take it out sailing a bit without it filling with water. I am a poor university student and this boat is a lovely little old thing but nothing particularly special so spending up big on proper a-grade repairs is not what I have in mind. Location: AUSTRALIA Why don't you enquire at your local surf shop for a repair kit for surfboards.
I would be inclined to it properly now so that the repairs are done now in winter to have it ready for when it warms up.
As with the other major brands there are fairing filler microballoon additives and glue mix additives. If you do want to go temporary, then it depends on when you are planning to fix it, but- You might want to go for something cheap that is the easiest to remove when proper repair time comes around. Our boat is a lot bigger that yours but we have just replaced most of our deck and cabin roof etc.. Location: Australia Some Photos Here are some photos of the boat and relevant problems, its sitting upside down on a couple of stands so some photos are upside down, others I have artificially turned around.
I like the idea of using a surfboard repair kit, but I thought polyester resin didn't adhere well to timber though?? Location: AUSTRALIA Hi Zoso, I personally havent use polyester resin for a very long time but even though not as sticky as epoxy will do the job.
Preparation by drying and taking back to bare wood and leaving a little roughened is essential to get a bond.
I haven't used very much poly but if you give it a good tooth to grip to then it will be more than ok.
Norseal does that wood preserving penetrating epoxy, that has glycol fungicides (I think) in it.
Location: Australia Rot The rot is soft and spongy, I know its hard to see in the photo but the small section of paint that has peeled off of the outside you could shove your finger through. Location: Australia bog oh yeah automotive bog is hydroscopic so it will absorb moisture out of the atmosphere (I have another hobby playing with old holdens) so generally for cars you apply an undercoat of etch primer or something rather than bogging straight onto steel, thats why I thought I should seal the timber underneath perhaps?
If it is long enough to have to clean up this fixit job then I would just replace the wood now. If you plan on sailing in the future too, then epoxy and marine ply will always be usefull.

If you want to go on the real cheap, and just try to cover the rot with your poly resin, you could also treat your wood with auto antifreeze. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.

While functionally similar to larger driftboats, they’re equally suited to lakes, bays, and other protected waters. Also recently a few small cracks (~5cm long) have appeared in the hull which I think were due to my younger brother jumping into the boat in an unscrupulous manner while it was sitting on its trailer. I just want to give it a few more years for me and my girlfriend to have fun with and maybe down the track I will consider a proper restoration. This will be polyester based and therefore cheaper than epoxy, and should contain resin and hardener and some woven fibreglass.
70-80 or something??) We were hoping to do lots of sailing this winter but the leaky problems with the boat stopped us but mainly the trailer it came with was very sub par (had wheelbarrow wheels fitted!!) so I've been working away at fixing that up aswell. I posted a link here to a technical page from a resin manufacturer which seems very good and simple to follow. The gunwale is solid, I can still sit right above the rot and it happily supports my weight. I have amp love of boats and boating inward fact single let been a full metre live aboard since September 2001. A few sticks of lumber are added for gunnels and corner knees plus ordinary steel bailing wire available anywhere for stitching. I also noticed it leaking from a couple of cracks in the paint around the centreboard case which I think is due to the seam deteriorating around that area.
You can thicken the resin to make a filler quite easily with wood flour or chopped up fibreglass for a coarser fill for larger holes. I'm not planning on using polyurethane on the boat but could I possibly use that sealer under the polyester resin??

If you have mat the quiesce wake of Sir Henry Wood on weewee Or the tranquility of a river canyon made. Their wide, flat bottoms give amazing stability, while shoal draft, built-in rocker, and light weight mean instant response to oar inputs.

I have used just about every type of boat to float fish with many years in 16 to 18 wood drift boats. I'm not sure however what type of epoxy to use, where to get it or even if I am planning on doing the correct thing here?? Use some woven fibreglass on the cracks after sanding right back, preferably on both sides of the plywood. Our 8' MODEL can be built in variable widths; 4?’ or 5', so it can fit most vans, pickups, or car tops. The Stitch & Glue kit contains all the necessary materials to stitch the boat together with and the Fiberglass kit provides the materials for covering the outside with a layer of fiberglass cloth for protection and ease of maintenance. If you decide to restore properly later and use epoxy, it will stick to polyester if sanded to provide a key.
Also, what about sealing the timber and using some polyester based filler putty like standard automotive bog to fill the cracks??
Looking at the photos the dinghy does not look all that valuable, and may not be worth any sort of expensive reno either now nor later.

Our driftboat designs are the most modern available as yet specially intended for first timers.
Our 10' MODEL is nearly as easy to transport, but more closely matches the performance of true driftboats - it can easily accommodate two fishermen. Hull panels are wire-tied together and joints bonded with epoxy filler and fiberglass tapes.
Exterior hull surfaces are coated with epoxy and fiberglass for abrasion resistance and minimum maintenance.
