A few questions before my deck recore project...

I have a South Coast 22 that I am restoring, my next chore is to recore the bow decking because it is very soft. I drilled a small hole in the center and the wood core was pretty damp so you all konw what that means. I think it should be totally redone so I don't plan on just drilling holes and filling it with epoxy.

The entire bow deck is soft so I am going to cut out the top layer of fiberglass and remove and replace the core then fiberglass the original piece of decking back on.

My question though is where should I make my cut? I know I need to cut the entire peice off, that would be no problem. The problem would arise when I go to glass the peice back on. As you can see in the following photos, there isn't alot of "smooth" deck space between the edge of the deck where the hull to deck joint is and the non-skid pattern.

All around I have about a 1" lane of smoothness to cut in.

When I go to glass it back I want it to be as easy as possible. I do not want to have to grind away any non-skid and I don't want to have to glass over it. I also would like to avoid having to glass down the outside corner just above the hull to deck joint.

Lets say I cut in the center of my smooth "lane" then that would leave me about a half inch on each side of the cut to grind out and adhere my fiberglass back to, would that be enough?

Thanks everyone for your replies!

Small is beautiful, simple, cheap, and easy......

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

sorry you are going to have to taper out the non skid to glass the outer surface back on. i would cut it right at the edge of the non skid, use the one inch smooth area as the taper on the out side of the cut

edit by taper i mean the bevel you will have to grind when you go to glass it back in
