Re: Cored decks?

Being omiscient is "the" problem with all surveyors or at least the belief that they're omiscient is the problem. But that's a catch 22.
I can see flat areas on the cabin top that are obviously ment for mounting hardware and winches but I will have to mount some things where I do not believe it was intended to mount hardware. Most of the hardware I will be mounting will have a lateral force on it as opposed to a vertical upward pull. So if I have to, I can drill a much larger hole through the liner and use large washers or custom made plates for backing. I was hoping for a little more than a bolt through 1/4"-3/8" of fiberglass and a washer holding it all together. Enlarging the hole through the liner to get some backing in place may be an issue in some areas of the interior. I will have to take a much closer look.

We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
