First time poster here. Thanks for the endless amounts of knowledge and experience provided here, it's been a real help. I've had trouble finding situations that similar to mine so I thought I'd just ask.
I had a 3 FCS x2 boxes (one fin and another half) get crushed and paid a guy to fix em for me. He replaced 3 of the 8 on a quad fish i have and a year and a half later the repair is doing baaaaad. The three boxes just wobbled all over. I resolved to learn to fix em myself! I have a fair bit of epoxy and fiberglass experience from boats and whatever else.
I started with the 2 that were a full fin. Basically i Just cut em out to see what the hell was going on, and ordered some fin boxes and q-cell. The plugs are holding firmly to a ball of hard crap that lost its grip of the surrounding material, so were pretty loose in there. Seems like the board is polysterene, and it is indeed epoxy.
Wondering what the best course of action is. I guess I'm wondering if I should try to replace foam as it's kind of a big void, if i should just q-cell it all and cloth and cut new holes, or i should just try to q-cell these plug balls back in, and glass them in proper.
There's probably an eigth of an inch of foam material missing around the ball- between the ball and the socket here, wondering if that would work out or what.
The other plug seems to be holding up much better, but does wiggle a bit. I'll probably end up drilling holes and syringing filler into there. Sound fine?
Help is greatly appreciated.
