    Screw hole fiberglass repairs, what’s your method?

    What method do you use for fiberglass screw hole repairs to hold a panel, bracket, or other fixture? I’ve resined up pieces of plywood and placed them as a backer, tried pieces of toothpicks. I’m just wondering it there is some better way?

    Late report-LB 10/4 lobster

    Hopped LB on Friday, 10/4. First trip of the season for us. First trip in 2 years due to life stuff. Started dropping early, about 5, finally quit about 11:30. Caught 2 very legal, threw away about 6 shorts. Fun times, great weather, good to be back.

    Was it sized correctly? There are different GPM helm pumps for different applications. Is the cylinder the correct size? Lots of variables. In my experience, you probably won't be able to steer with one finger, unless you have power assist, but it shouldn't be stiffer than cable steering.
