Dear BC,

Replacing the wood in the deck is a challenge. I have spent a lot of time on this guys blog, Mango Madness J30 #185 rebuild. He has done a lot of repaire including just what you are going through, deciding to repaire from the top.

At the bottom of the page there are links to others who are doing the same. Check out the Stella Blue page. He does a great job of deck sealing and just about everything else that we all face at one time or another.

These guys make it simple enough to understand, so that if you have the skills and some tools, you can do it.

I don't recommend repairing from the bottom, if you can avoid it. I had to do the bottom of my companionway hatch pocket on my Santana 525. Because it was the bottom of an enclosed compartment, it had to be done from the bottom, essentially overhead. I got it done, but it was a mess and a lot of resin was on me.

Good luck with your project.

Thank you LookingForCruiser and Old Chief, I am grateful for the advice! This is really going to help me do a quality job the first time, so hopefully I won't have to do this again.
