Re: How much deck over the cabin do I remove?

Well

It takes some time BUT you need to fully explore the options BEFORE committing to top or bottom core repair

Keep in mind no matter how wet it is right now ONCE you remove ONE skin the deck will become a floppy mess that will bend if a heavy bird lands on the boat

I favor bottom BUT it was also how the Cal 29 was built (very little inner skin)

I see your outdoors in Maine so the weather is already NOT in your favor

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
