A Northern Bay 36 came to our yard after grounding and in need of structural repairs to the hull and keel. The keel damage included a large hole on the bottom as well as several smaller damaged areas leading back towards the transom. The hull suffered damage in several areas.
Currently the keel repairs have been made as well as repairs to the areas on the starboard side hull. The hull repair included removing the outer skin of fiberglass, repairing the inner skin, and vacuum bagging a new ¾” balsa core. We are now prepping the topsides for an application of Awl-Grip Jade Mist Green.
Several other items as a result of the grounding will be addressed prior to Spring launch. These include: Re-insulating the engine room; inspecting all of the wiring in the boat and replacing it as necessary; installing a new thruster motor, a new prop, a new fridge, and a new stove. Areas in the forward interior show wet core through water intrusion and these areas will be dried and repaired as necessary. A new transom door will be fabricated and installed allowing access out of the cockpit onto the swim platform.
