Grind the fiberglass in the areas where you will me mounting the pads. Score the bottom of the plywood pads, and put some resin soaked mat under the pad when you stick it to the hull. Then cover over with a layer of mat and cloth, extending out about 4" or 5" out from the pad. Be sure to taper the top edges of the pad to be able to smooth out the fiberglass.

The other alternative is to make the pads, score the bottoms, then seal them with epoxy resin. Use an epoxy putty to stick the pad to the hull. No fiberglassing required.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
