What was i thinking!!


Yesterday evening i went home from work early to start installing a wooden floor in the cabin of my boat. My dad had some left over from his house. Anyway i dont know what the hell i was thinking because when i was drilling the piliot holes i drilled through the bottom of the boat. Now i have two freaking holes in the bottom of my 26 infinity. I was so pissed i wanted to beat my dog. Well my question is what do i fix this with. Do i use some bubbles, or does 3M make a marine filler? Thanks in advance for any info. Jlay

Might try gluing a hardwood dowel in it's place, leaving about a one eighth inch deep "divit" and use Marine Tex to fill that in.

Otherwise ask a legit glass guy what to do.

I ran a screw through the bottom of my boat.

Roughed out the hole from the bottom with a course dremel bit and filled with marine-tex, sanded it down carefully. You cant tell. For the hole inside. plug with dowel as Formula suggests or mix up some fiberglass resin and inject with one of those syringes that you use to inject meat with marinade.

I would suggest a pad lock on your tool box.

Ah...who among us hasn't done something even worse...

I saw a guy cut a hole in his dash for a GPS and put a matching hole in his cabin door that happened to be open at the time!

No, it wasn't me, but if I was paying attention at the time I might have noticed what he was doing.

I was at a boat race in Havasu one time, and when one team tried to launch the boat it wouldn't come off the trailer ---

Someone had accidentally screwed through the bottom of the boat to the bunks! True story.


It's one thing to mess up at home, but to mess up in front of an audience of thousands - that's priceless.
