Re: Toe rail refinish/rebed 1987 pearson

Yes, I am almost finished replacing the core under the anchor cleats. I discovered that the deck is cored under the toe rails. However, it looks like plywood and it may be epoxied. Not sure.

I removed the rotted balsa and plywood from under the cleats and was then able to view the core under the toe rail. It was solid, even though it was abutting rotted balsa core. Not sure why but very happy about that.

Sabar, does the plywood core extend the length of the boat under the toe rails?

I'll be working on that next year. Were you able to find a supplier for the plastic shield strip under the rub rail? What did you use for bedding material?
