    Side question, sorry to hijack... But does anyone know a real good Whaler glass guy down hers in San Diego? Someone who knows cored hulls? I have some minor repairs than need doing to my hull and I know I have some minimal water in it. Would like to track down the source too. I've used and have talked to a few different glass guys down here with mixed results. I need a Whaler specialist. Thanks.

    Bobby Blesser.... 619-417-1249

    He's in Bay Park. Tell him John with the whaler sent you. Willdoggy on here gave me his referral. You can see some of his work in one of my threads looking for glass work repair.

    Why do you think you have water in your hull?

    Thanks, does Bobby have a legit glass company or is this just something he does on the side? I get weird little brown pinhole dried salt drops, crystals that occaisionally pop up on the keel. I've hear it called Whaler pox before and apparently it's somewhat common on older Whalers. There's not much water in there as the hull is not heavy and sits high in the water. I don't store it in the water so I'm not real worried about it, but I would like to get it opened up, dried out and repaired back with factory level structural soundness.

    You got a link to one of the threads you mention?

    unless you have money to burn, dont chase and repair whaler pox

    if waterlines look right, unlikely your foam is saturated.

    i have a 22 guardian with 29,000 hours on hull and its on the 15th motor. sometimes leaving alone is the better decision. spend the $$ on fishing....

    And most times, a year after the repair, the pox are back unless you spend the big dollars and go down to mat and roll more mat and then finish off with LP or gelcoat.

    And I have done a few to know when the time comes to just fish it as is.

    If you are Point Loma, Shelter Island has every guy around that can do this type of work, I have a Hatt 60 and have had work done at Shelter Island boat yard. Not saying thats the place for your type of repair, but lots of guys in that line of work that know someone to do your repair or suggestions for repair right in your back yard for sure. If I was you I would go do to San Diego Marine exchange and ask around to get a guy on the side. All the good guys get there supplies there daily.

    I had some work done by them as well. They did a great job but took a long time.
    I was able to fix my trailer at home since they took the boat off to do the repairs.

    No matter what you do, GET YOUR ESTIMATE IN WRITING no matter how much or little is quoted in a thread. There is one vendor listed on this thread with whom I've had a piss poor experience with because of the first sentence.

    I would recommend Performance Glass in La Habra from experience.
