    STV River Rocket. Need to Redo the Battery Platform.

    1995 Original Summerford River Rocket.
    Need to Redo the Battery Platform.
    Never done any work with Resin/Epoxy.
    Want to do a good, clean and quick solution (if possible).
    Reading the info from some of the posts, makes my head spin.
    I see there are a few out there who really know their stuff.
    I don't want to over complicate it, but don't want to screw it up either.
    Please advise...
    Thanks
    Greg

    Is the wood shown rotted or wet? If so you need to do some more removal. Be careful! as you don't want any more repairs. If the wood is good, you could make another pc and just glass it back in. Need to sand down to glass around the perimeter about 3''-4'' with a small grinder disc to get a good bond. They sell 2'' discs that mount to your drill that work great. Either epoxy or vinyl resin would work good. I guess the boat is a polyester hull material?
