Re: Newbie questions after first time taking out sailboat
Do you know if the Americans have plywood cored hulls? If so, the water could be a problem. I wasn't aware that those boats had a separation between the hull and the cockpit liner, but maybe that's true. If that's the case, and there isn't a core, I don't think I'd be overly worried about a cup or two of water.
I know there's *some* plywood, but I don't know if it's just in certain places, or if it's throughout the boat. For example, the lockers below the cuddy have glassed plywood walls. I only know this because there are some deterioration/holes that will allow water to flow between the lockers and the space between the cockpit and hull.
