Got all three bulkheads tack, tabbed and glassed in today. Getting cold this week, that shop heater is working overtime. Also did three layers of 12oz. On transom and stern of boat, as well as a layer over the thickened around the well.

27 degrees here this AM so not much work done today. Did get the rigging tube complete and set. I epoxy’d the exposed plys and will go back over with a bead of thickened when it warms up. What’s the general consensus on how to attach the rigging tube to the stringer?

Most rigging tubes, you would want to avoid using 90 degree elbows. Easier to get cables and even wiring through with two 45 degs or a 90 deg curve.

Your repair is really looking good.

Thanks, taken longer than anticipated, but did not know what to anticipate to that statement isn’t accurate.

I was able to avoid the regular 90’s and utilize the longer swept (curved) 90s. I ran the throttle cables thru to see how well they would snake thru the tube and they didn’t have an issue.

Long turn 90s would be the only way to go.

The best way to bond/seal pvc is black mamba fhg (kudos to Aripeka Angler).

A mechanical fastening is required every 4 feet per abyc, but I wouldn't worry too much if you bond it well or put something under to keep it from falling..

The steering cables are the worst, but they may make it through those sweep 90's.
