Wow, thanks for all these replies I just now got on to check the site, we have been down in the belly of the beast all day just trying to clean it out a bit to make the time spent down there a little more pleasant, we are probably going to start on the real work very soon. Any and all input is greatly appreciated so keep it coming! We are most likely going with marine ply, if we properly rebed the chainplates there will be no water coming in to worry about rot in the first place.

I finally got the Head Rebuild photos posted to my site. The link follows.

S/V Victoria Head Reconstruction

My wife is the one who convinced my to not worry about using marine plywood. Her attitude is that there should be NO moisture intrusion, so I really didn't need to worry about waterproof glue in the wood. Put that way, it made sense since moisture the problem in the first place and Sabre used marine ply. If you buy furniture grade ply, there will be many plies and no voids. I use it extensively in my furniture.

As for the size of the piece of plywood and the size of the companionway, we have a smallish companionway and the sheet of ply was about 5' tall and 3' wide. I had no problem getting it inside the boat, but I suppose that it's possible. At one time, I had the illusion that I could cut out the bad stuff and scarf in a good piece of ply. I ended up replacing the whole thing because a splice seemed so wrong.

Now that I think about it a bit further, I think that 10b contradicts sailingdog's comment about hard spots on the hull. I wasn't sure why Sabre had the gap, now I know why. I figured that if I made an exact replacement and attached it exactly as did Sabre, that would be good enough for me. I hereby respectfully withdraw 10b. I like the foam idea and would probably use it if I had to do it again.

I think he NEEDS to go with the marine ply...
in S.Florida, it rains... almost every G&^ D&^% day.. The humidity here is off the scale. (8AM, 76%, if I wasn't for the bikinis, I'd think I was in Seattle) Even if he seals other wood products like a duct taped hefty bag, it'll separate VERY quickly.
