I'm like a lot of the newbies. 30+ year mono sailor who just picked up a (new to me) 1981 H16.
The bottom of the hulls need some glass: I can see exposed roving from the factory layup, small voids where the bottom has been abraded.Also in these areas on both hulls, they seem to have flat sections about 1" wide in the mid section. Normal? Or do I need to re-sculpt these areas into more sharp angles? My gut reaction was to just epoxy a few layers of glass tape, fair, fill, repeat, prime, paint and sail!
Oddly, when I tipped the trailer up and pulled the hull drain plugs, water ran out, so the hulls SEEM to have water tight integrity on the bottoms. Thoughts? Spiritual guidance?
