Under the cabin floorboard, there is a sump where the bilge pump hose sits. Above this and between the ribs there is a bit of wood fibre glassed into the structure. The bit of wood is about 3 inches wide and about 18 inches long.
The bit of wood is rotten and beginning to smell. I need to get it out.
Anyone know its purpose and has anyone else had this problem?
I too own an 85 Attalia, and recently replaced the wood that makes up the sides of the motor box and had to fiberglass them to the bottom. I can't picture the peice of wood you described. Post a picture if you can.
