  • 1967 Starcraft Fiberglass, fix?

    I have a 67 starcraft, and please if anyone knows, did any of these come originally fiberglass? I havent seen any others that have been fiberglass. Anyways there was originally another motor on it that bolted to the transom and while doing some work on the top of the transom I noticed a drop of water come out of one of those holes that looked very well sealed. The transom is still very solid, holds the weight of the motor plus another 100lbs of my weight with no problem. Is there a quick easy way to dry the water up and reseal it? or maybe drill a hole at the very bottom of the transom to make it is drained completely and seal them? I don't have the money to start tearing this boat apart.

    Kai welcome to iboats and with that picture the Starcraft club . The unfortunate answer on the water is if the trnsom is wet theres only one way to make it dry replace it . You could drill some exploratory holes into the bottom of the transom from inside ( not all the way through ) if the wood comes out like dry sawdust just use some 3M 4200 or 5200 to seal up the outer holes and some resin to seal up the holes you drilled inside . However if you get wet wood out of the bottom then you are ready to redo the trnsom. There were and still are Fiberglass Starcrafts although there are alot more Aluminum ones here .

      Wellll, guess I'll just repair it the best I can and run it til it sinks. Only have about $500 in this boat with the motor. Definitely don't have the money to repair her and only a short bit of summer left. Thanks for the info, I'll definately check the bottom from the inside.
