Deck locker fiberglass repair

Thomas <thomas.kleman@...>

Apologies if someone has already posted the answer to this question- I wasn't able to find anything in the database on my own. A few of the fiberglass forks on deck lockers (against which the nob tightens and creates the seal) are badly chipped, resulting in the nob not grabbing properly. I'm sure this has happened to other boats and I was wondering about repair strategies.

Obviously this is an awkward place for both apoxy as well as fiberglass repair due to the shape and strength requirements......Cutting it completely off in order to affix a newly molded fork seems a big production. Would love to hear what the experts have done, especially the materials used.
