    Its junk but you might find someone to fix it and cost could be very high.

    damifino, thanx for the link. its 26 ft day racer 40 ft stick, thinkin bout sounding suspeect areas and drilling small holes from inside to outside of klegecell lamination around the edges. then a hole in the center of the area. using a syringe putting west epoxy system in center hole till it comes out all the outter holes and putting pressure on spot from inside till epoxy cures.

    sr1 iffn you arent sure of which u speak it might be best not to add your 2 cents.

    Hitting with a rubber hammer will find and define the margins of any delaminations. An expert Marine Surveyor with a rubber mallet can read a hull like reading a newspaper.

    Thanks Chip. Been playing with glass since my first one in 57. really like the small plastic hammers better. was really wondering if anyone had experience with klegecell. Have plenty of experience with balsa and some of the other coreing materials.appreciate your thoughts though.
