- Oct 4, 2011I'd Like to have a LM at a dock!
it's so easy to repair a ply boat......cut out the rot, make a plug,
make a larger backing plate, gube it all up w/epoxy and screw it all
together....better technique reaps better finish
That Micro keel is a typical Bolger jab @ traditional construction...1/4
in ply for a keel! It's Bolger it works
