Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Bulge in Engine Hatch Cover and elsewhere.

Actually the report, at least from Bill Rouse, was that, while the repair made the mounting strong, it did not address the bulging, which, I is what Gerhard is getting at and what my original post asked.
At least on the hatch hinges, there is a metal insert embedded in the fiberglass. It is likely "non-corrosive" stainless steel, which will indeed corrode and expand dramatically under the right conditions.
I would be most interested in a reply to Gerhard's query.

The repair is well known and you can have it done by Riza Cagdas at Emek Marine in Goček Turkey.
Every report indicates a good repair.
