After evaluating the existing vessel foundation we found out that vertical dowels between pedestal and mat are NOT adequate. As the most cost effective repair we are thinking of drilling (32)~1-1/8”Ø x 90” deep holes between existing dowels and anchor bolts and setting #8 rebars with HILTI HIT HY 150 ADHESIVE (please see attached sketch). Our main concern is if drilling new holes will disturb/weaken existing anchor bolts. Your comments/suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you, iv
