If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Well

I work in the stainless field so it was low cost as a favor and i changed the beam to 2-7/8" wide with a 1" 90deg lip to allow the liner to be screwed back inplace as the liner just sits there and does not really play a role in holding the boat together

By the time the pocket door track is back in place and the teak grate is placed back in the seam is not really going to stand out that bad

As a 1970 boat it had a simple head in bad shape so it was not much of a demo job.

I looked at other Cal 29s with REALLY nice woodwork that would have to be destroyed to do the repiar and was a big reason i picked a beat up baot


IHMP the beam is EASY compared to fixing the motor and out of complaince things like the fuel filler on the cockpit floor i have to move to the RAIL

Is the cal 30 the same ? as the beam is very different in larger Cals ?

After you lift the pan the i had to CUT off the 3 tabs that hold it in place with a saws-all to save the bulkheads at which point it was still stuck in there

These are the same tabs you now see on the head side in the picture But i set them flush into the bulkhead so the pocket door will still fit

Then under the port seats i drilled a 3/4 hole to allow a large metal rod and hammer to pound out the old beam



Mariposa had to demo the whole boat i chose to try and leave the main bulkhead in place and change the location of the tabs to the head side so the beam could be put back into place from the head area

You end up working in a TINY area that JUST allows the pan to be lifited in and out with issues like my arm could JUST reach the ice box to replace the drain hose

It supports the mast as the compression post (the big hunk of wood by the pocket door)sits right on top of it



The center tab tells the story
