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

Has the video been taken off of youtube?

Copy pasting the url doesn't work for me... Really hoping to see how the deck looks.

Never mind, mucking around with the url got it to work!

So looking at the video, I have a few comments:

- Is the hull solid fiberglass? If it is, there would be no rot between the hull and keel, just nasty old caulking and fairing compound?

- There seems to be a long crack along the deck, maybe where the front end of the cabin wall meets it? That would affect the structural strength of the deck.

- I think krisscross's suggestion of drilling drainage holes is a good one. It could also help assess things.

- You have the same Kobalt channel lock pliers I have!
