The repair feels really solid and tough. Total time so far is 2 weeks. one nice thing, almost no one comes to this marina after labor day, so I almost never see anyone, so I disturb no one making noise with saws, etc..., and don't have to hear negative commentary.

But the few that do see me working on it, it is like they say too much work, etc...But I know what I am capable of repair wise.
