recore the deck
So I have a few delaminated spots in the deck, one of which is under a chock and requires attention before launch. So I'm planning on recoring these spots. The instructions in "This Old Boat" seem straightforward enough - however, one thing doesn't seem clear. The little diagrams always show the deck being cut exactly over the delamination. I'm guessing that's easier said than done - how do you know exactly where to cut? You want to cut out far enough that you get all the delamination, but if you cut into solid marine plywood core, the top layer of fiberglass isn't going to come off is it? It's all epoxied onto the wood...
Anyhow that's the mystery that's puzzling me today. I'll have another exciting question tomorrow, I'm sure.
