Re: Recore Entire Deck
Well we are going under the knife tomorrow. Thanks for all of your ideas - this is weirder because there is no data for this boat. At the very least some future Anacapri Erica 24 owner will know what is inside his boat
My tool of choice an oscillating multitool Nice clean cuts.
Good luck! The multitool is far and away the best choice for this job. There's a tendency on some of the cheaper versions for the blade to get pinched in the deck core & vibrate loose. I put a lock washer under the retaining bolt & that solved the need to re-tighten the blade every two feet. Hmm... you've got me motivated to carve out another section of our sidedecks. Ugh. You would not believe the state of the genoa track backing. So rotted, can't tell if it was solid fir or plywood!
