Batboat Rebuild: July 30, 2010 Filling imperfections and fixing the splashwell.

I started the day with the first fixes to the severely damaged splashwell. The rear was straitened out with clamps and long wood blocks so I could bond with fiberglass.

There were still a lot of imperfections in the hull and those were filled with epoxy resin.

The wood blocks were wrapped with plastic bags to prevent the polyester resin from bonding them to the splashwell.

Some holes and other damage were filled in.

There were over a hundred holes in the topside. All were drilled with a 1/2 counter sink to aid bonding the filler to them.
