Re: Need Help Outfitting for Cruising. :)

Welcome, we have E35II, 1973. Definitely remove the chain plates. Both sides the bulkhead were rotten. You may have remove a wood cover plates. Check the stern plate...worth putting more fiberglass matt over it. Use white rubber mallet and do a sounding on every inch of the deck. There is a history rotten cores due to leaky deck fittings. That why we got a "great" deal on ours. The windows are known to leak. It has 40 year the caulking dries out. Do you have Atomic4, is it mid engine mount?

We have website...if you haven't found it yet. EY.o Information Exchange - The Front Page
