The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    i have a 1979 with a very bad repair job on the ballist keel to hull.
    i mean finshing cloth and air bubbles the size of my foot.
    so bad that i can't find the seam. all the sail boats that i have worked on have had a seam where the hull joins up with the ballist keel. i have been told that thay have a bolt on keel and i have been told that thay are glassed over. i did a little grinding to remove air bubbles and i hav zero to 1/8'' thick glass where i think the seam should be. any instght out there?
