Once a boat leaves the factory, the USCG and ABYC have nothing to say about it (unless it's in commercial use). You can do anything you want to it. Best policy is to follow their standards, but there are no boat police to order you off the water if you make an unsafe modification.

That's part of the risk in buying a pre owned boat. The previous owner may have used some unsafe materials or methods in repair or modification to the boat.
