    Default How far gone, is too far gone?

    I have a 77 mark twain tri hull that sat outside on a trailer for at least 6 years uncovered. The stringers are rotted out. I have mostly gutted it except for the foam underneath

    I have no fiberglass experience, but the hull doesn稚 look damaged. Does fiberglass become unrepairable at a certain point. I知 aware that it will be a lot of work, but I知 just curious if the fiberglass can become damaged beyond repair by age and exposure? And how can you tell? Thanks.

    i have some pictures I値l try to post.

    The foam has to come out.-----Glass in new stringers / ribs.-----I like using ---WEST SYSTEM ----epoxy and fiberglass / carbon fiber.------Doing a 40 year old boat now.-----Nothing wrong with the glass of the hull.
