Oh yes, I've learned that lesson. I had read that some people actually flipped the entire San Juan 21 over in order to recore, so the cabin ceiling was easier to work on. "Hunh," I thought, "why would anyone go to that much trouble?"

And now I know why.

I should have done that or the alternative, which is to cut the fg off from the deck, along the non-skid lines, recored, then epoxied it back on and fixed/tolerated the joint lines.
