I am just getting ready to remount my engine mounts to steel flanges bolted to fiberglass bed built up on the hull.
I have moved two of the steel flanges1/4" to starboard to provide more room for aligning the shaft, however this leaves a 1/4" gap between the vertical part of the flanges and the fiberglass bed.
Wondering what I should fill this gap with? The flanges need to fit flush against the bed to provide additional stability I think, hence I should build up the gap to bed the flanges.
30 years ago whoever re powered the boat appears to have used some kind of hardened filler - similar to bondo, but not as hard and rigid. The old stuff came off in pliable chunks with a chisel and boat knife. The material is jot the same as the old gray putty used by Whitby.
