  1. I have had a leak in the centerboard cap of my Lapwing since I got it. External caulking was not effective so I decided to seal it internally with epoxy before my first spring sail. In the process, I realized the centerboard needed work. It was worn down to bare wood in one place caused by a slight warp. After repairing and reinstalling the centerboard I began cleaning the inside of the boat. This is when I was reminded of the bubble I had seen in the paint on the side of the centerboard trunk. Well it turned out to be covering rot. I have now uncovered about a square foot of damage in three separate areas on the trunk and my spring sailing is looking doubtful. I suspect that replacing the whole trunk is beyond my skills. So I am considering stabilizing the areas with epoxy, adding scraps of fiberglass to the deeper parts, filling in with thickened epoxy and then sanding and painting. I should note that the trunk has epoxy and fiberglass in the inside but not on the outside. There is probably more rot near the base of the trunk behind the seam with the hull. I don't see how to get to this without ripping out the whole thing. Is this a viable plan? Any suggestions?
