Recently acquired a 1985 Alumacraft Jon boat. It has pin holes in the bottom apparently due to age and corrosion. Thinking about using MarineTex or Gluvit. Which is best.
Flipped her back over. Put 6 inches of water in her. Dry as a bone. At least right now. Thinking about powering down so I don’t beat it so bad.I have patched the leaks with PC11 . Leaks not from rivets but from corrosion as saltwater was trapped in trailer bunk carpet.. and put flexseal on all bottom rivets. Now going to paint the entire bottom. We shall see what we see.
I took an 8' F150 bed to the recycler and got $18.Capt Bob, thanks for your thoughts. Maybe when it starts leaking again I will take it to the recycler. I stayed away from aluminum boats for years. Maybe I can get enough from the recycler to buy some West System so I can refurbish a glass hull.
