Rebedding sail tracks

I ended up doing this on my O28 several years ago and found that for a portion of the track, the screws penetrated the deck AND the cabin liner, and for the rest of the track, there was no cabin liner, so it was just the deck. In any case, on my boat, which was a 1979, the deck was/is cored, and a significant part of the stbd section had to be peeled, the balsa removed, a synthetic core material installed, and the deck replaced. Rebedding is a whole lot easier with two people, one on deck with the screw driver and the other in the salon holding the wrench to the nuts. FWIW,
