...cleaning out the rotted portion of the bow part of the keel. It definately still has the CPES smell that just about knocks you out and after pouring in about a quart and watching it soak in there doesn't appear to have any benefit. If there is, it's minimal.
..anyway using a Dremel tool and a chisel I reamed that rot out. The Dremel tool works pretty good because it rips through the rot but not the good wood because it's harder.
Now I've got to think!....how will I approach this repair? Fill it with epoxy? do another mini glue lam? Use metal as a reinforcement (rebar if you will)....what?
