Re: Cal 29 beam rot

Anyone interested, I fixed mine on the water, in a month, for around $500 total! I've got a photo-log of the whole thing. I didn't remove bulkheads, I did maintain beam to bulkhead connection (it should be duly noted and accommodated that the steel beam was intended for more than just holding the mast up--just filling in the vacant cavity with foam/fiberglass isn't enough) and, once it was back together, there wasn't a trace that I'd ripped her apart. Then I sailed it a thousand miles to Mexico. If you need some help/hope, hit me up for details. -Shipwreck
