Boler Door Weight???

First, let me apologize for not keeping track of authors of previous posts so I could give credit where it's due! I cannot begin to tell you all how much information I have gleaned from this site!

I have removed the door to my '72 Boler and plan to put on new Scamp hinges (which I already have). I had read all about the soggy door problems and hoped that wasn't an issue, but of course it was I am working on that (thanks to great info here)!

My question is this: does anyone have any idea what the door should weigh? I've drilled holes to dry the inside, hoping I don't have to do more other than re-glassing that area. My door weighs 27 pounds, which doesn't sound bad, but still seems like a lot to be hanging from one side. (I didn't weigh it when I first took it off the trailer.) Does that weight sound reasonable?

Yep, I think I'd better go ahead and open more of the bottom.

Anybody know if I can use PVC with fiberglass? Might just use a couple pieces to rebuild the shape of the bottom, if that makes sense. I really don't want to take the whole door apart.

We just finished repairing our door and after our repairs it weighs 17.5 pounds. Ours probably had water in it at one time as it had a lot of rot. I think you may still have more water in it as 27 pounds seems quite heavy. Good luck with your repair.

Thanks Mark, John & Jaci!! I had nothing to compare it to, so I didn't have a clue! Last night I did open it up "a bit" more, and took out a lot of gunk, but now I know I have more to go as it's still over 25#! Thanks again!
