Getting ready to repaint the bilge. Any good reason to keep the old generator pad? I currently use a portable for my AC. I want to get rid of it and mount my port fuel filter like my starboard filter on the bulkhead.

Drilled out the transom. Taped up all of the holes, mixed up some resin, dipped pipe cleaners in the resin and then coated the inside of all the holes. I went a little light on the MEKP to give it time to hopefully soak a little into the wood. I did brush the exhaust holes.

When sanding down the bilge I notice a couple little cracks and soft spot in the bilge and on a stringer. There were a couple voids under the cracks. I ground them out and put down a few layers of 1708. Nothing wet or rotted, just weird. Tabbing come loose? I'll sand and smooth tomorrow.

I took everyone's opinion and removed the generator pad today. lol Hopefully I am done grinding and cutting. No matter how much you try to protect yourself, glass gets everywhere. It's on my arms, cheeks, neck. Irritates like he!!. What a miserable job. I just need to put some glass and resin down over the stringer that I cut the addition off of.
On a positive note... the resin'd holes that I did last night turned out pretty good.

Glass work is my absolute least favorite job especially grinding. Hope the irritation doesn’t last too long.

Very funny...
Made some progress last night. I'm going to put down another layer of glass were the bilge pumps are located. There are a bunch of holes and I don't know if I can see all that are there. Maybe someone hit it with buckshot while I wasn't looking. Don't want more water intrusion later.

Got back at it today. Installing new hardware. Had 6 cleats originally. I'm going to add 2 between the front cleats and the 2 by the front seats for a total of 8.
