25 Paul Esterle Mark Corke Fixed-Port Repair n many boats fixed ports or windows are prone to cracking, hazing, and leaking. Leaks are the most serious, as I discovered aboard our Columbia 35; the inner paneling was delaminating, and the core in the coachroof had started to rot. There are many different types of fixed ports—surface-mounted, surfacemounted with trim rings, flush-mounted, and metal-framed. The process presented here won’t be suitable for all of these, but it can be adapted for most boats.
Once that had set up, I ground the joint smooth and covered it with two layers of glass cloth approximately 5′′ wide. Then I applied four layers of new tabbing to the aft side of the new section where it joined the hull (Photo B4). Once everything had set up, I faired the entire bulkhead moving and replacing these bulkheads was a much larger task than replacing the small bulkhead in the bow, I used essentially the same process. First, I removed all the joinery forming the settees and storage lockers on both sides of the main saloon (Photo C1).
Across the bulkhead where I had cut out the rotten wood, I routed out a 3⁄4′′ shelf exactly half as deep as the thickness of the bulkhead. Then, using rolls of light-yellow tracing paper, I made a template of the new piece to be scarfed in and added 34 ⁄ ′′ to the top where the new wood would overlap the old. Again I used MDO plywood. Once the new piece was cut (again I left space for a thin gap between it and the hull), I routed out a coordinate 34 ⁄ ′′ shelf to form the seam between the new and old sections of bulkhead.
