hull to kell seal in through bolt

I have a wooden boat 26 feet aldin design built in 1918.

Repaired in 1970s with polyester fiber glass shell over hull refastened with bronze.

New dead wood plywood laminated and encased in glass.

She was not put in water last year but year before yes and no leeks except fresh water from problems in deck.

Now I see the dead wood and hull has signs of separation.

What is the options I have to fix this ?

What is the best product to fix this?

I am sending pictures

I think you are going to have to grind away the separated areas, back to the underlying wood and hope that there isn’t any rot.

Allow it to dry out thoroughly before re glassing and epoxying.
