Hello to all. Being new here I already searched through the older posts for answers to my repair needs. But I feel more advice is required. I have never attempted this kind of repair.
I have done my own repairs for the last 3 years. On occasion, i have been asked to repair other family members' boards (minor ding work). But, last season my brother-in-law retired his 3 year old, 9'-10" MacTavish due to delams (really soft spot) in the landing area and spider cracks leaking underneath. Odd part is, its only delammed and cracked on the right side of the stringer (top delam and bottom cracked). The other side is clean. He was planning on turning it into a coffee table until he challenged me to fix it. Sad to say, this board was not abused or ridden daily. Only weekend use during the spring summer and fall.
I know there are two schools of thought. Cut it out and replace the bad glass or inject resin into the affected areas. I am leaning toward injecting due to not wanting to ruin the excellent paint job done by MacTavish.
Can you give me a list of tools and the steps needed to fool proof this job... or should I just let him turn it into a coffee table?
