Tayana 37: Coamings cut off - is this repairable?

Looked at a Tayana 37 today. The current owner, in an attempt to fix a leak that according to him most Tayana's suffer from, cut off both cockpit coamings flush with the deck. This removed the mounting surface for the main whinches.
I wonder if this is repairable (to original aesthetics and strength) such that one would be able to rely on the winches staying in place in a blow.

Any suggestions and ideas on how to do such a repair from the astute membership will be appreciated.

Oh My Gawd!

Well this is I guess how it should look


Yes it can be restored. Question is.. the teak may cost more then the owner is "paying" you to take the boat of their hands. What where they thinking? Is all I can ask! What a mess! How badly do you want this boat? Did they save the boards and the glass they cut without thinking?

My guess; they were thinking they hated the cockpit so small and wanted it less confining.

On the positive side - this is the kind of boat I dream of, the price is pretty low (I think he understands the mess and subsequently dropped his price pretty low) and the boat is on the same lake I sail in.

The bad - he didnt keep the cut-off pieces - it sounds that it was cut into pieces to get it off - including the teak

It was not that he wanted a bigger cockpit. Apperently Tayanas have a "standard" leak - water get into the coaming, into the core of the deck and then run into the boat interior where it drips out on the freezer lid.

I believe the owner really believed the only way to address the issue was through major surgery...

Unless you are really into learning how to do this job, and develope the experiencxe as you go, get a good estimate on what it would take. My guess...to much. You may want to see what else he "fixed"'

Jesus H. Christ.... WTF was he thinking.... Thats like doing a Hysterectomy to cure a tooth ache. If you can fix it great, if a boat yard does the repair (reconstruct) your probably looking a several thousand dollars.

Easy repair. No point in using teak for the sides as it will be a paint finish. Teak for the top would be about 200 250 US$ per side.

I think I would through bolt a couple of blocks to transfer the winch loads below but it would most likely be overkill.

Might be good to talk to the designer.

Paging Bob Perry.

Looking on the bright side, he cut them off neatly. It is repairable. It might be worth buying an hour of Mr. Perry's time to get an idea of how best to repair this.

Some people shouldn't be allowed to buy tools. Seriously.

Heres a thought, fabricate the replacements out of aluminum and then bolt them onto the deck. this would give the strength to hold the winches.
