Sea C Strider

Sea C Strider
I have a 1964 Sather 36' rebuilt fishboat that I bought 6 years ago and converted to a sedan cruiser.
I took her onto the hard 2 weeks ago for new survey,insurance,bottom paint,zincs and general out of water touch up.
She passed the survey and is insured but because slings were used to take her out and in she has now developed a constant leak on the starboard rear quarter.
I want to take her out and fix the problem properly but wanted to ask if anyone may have a a temporary solution as my budget was stretched on the original survey/fix up.
I've been told about floating sawdust in the area around the leak?
Using Fisherman's Cement on the inside? Is this regular cement?
Using Roofing Tar?
And is there an epoxy that works on wet wood? I know sikaflex doesn't.
I just need a temp fix till I can get her done properly in 3 to 6 months?
The photo is last year and have added stainless steel/wood railings, removed top tarpaulin and am adding a fwd.door on starboard side for easier access to tying up.
My Thanks to any suggestions
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
