Just thought I'd share what is a big accomplishment for me. Andy at Boatworks Today walked me through it. As I always say, I"m not that handy but I can watch youtubes and follow expert advice. The before pic shows the original fix. Apparently someone smacked something and damaged the stanchion platform and toerail. All I know is that I was tired of looking at it and without much else to do given quarantine I decided to take it on. It's mostly an aesthetic improvement, but I do think my fix is more solid. I'll spare you all the pics taken at every step of the way. It involved grinding, lots of sanding, epoxy, fairing, material, more sanding, new nonskid paint, regular paint. I would send pics at each step to Andy and we would discuss... I only wish I had matched the paint better, but Andy's comment, was "that's the nature of the beast and it will dull somewhat. "
