    Default Bottom Delamination

    I have a 2000 Caravelle 210 Center Console. I used it for many years in the Great Lakes and brought it to Florida when we moved in 2011. During the winter of 2018 the bottom on the port side delaminated. The hull integrity is fine - no leaks - but the outer thin layer of fiberglass is torn loose. The boat has been drying out in storage over the summer. Can anyone advise the best way to do a repair?

    Grind back the bad area to good substrate and 4 to 6 inches past. Then rebuild the area with fiberglass cloth and epoxy. Fair smooth with cabosil, prime, and paint.

    As above except use waxed gelcoat instead of paint and primer IF its an easy color to match (plain bright white). Otherwise, prime and paint the whole bottom.
