I am sorry what does Chamfered mean? It looks like the holes still open right on top of the wood you put down? Is all you would have to do to make that floor look like a finished boats floor is paint it? Sorry for the newb questions, my readings have not progressed into repairs yet.

This is what chamfered is. You basically create a larger bonding surface to make the repair stronger and easier to fair out when done. I will paint soon now that i've got the cabin top off.

Those holes are supposed to be there so that you can inspect the keel bolts. I've got them drilled out now.

Cabin top is off now! This is just too awesome, one of the many benefits of a pop top! I don't have to glass over my bald head now!!! Hehe

I installed a brace to keep the top rigid and to the proper shape...


I drilled two holes on each side and sank some lag bolts to keep it tight.




Now she's a big Canoe!


And safely nestled in the garage until I feel like starting the re-core.






I'm afraid to ask what the balsa is gonna run me? Is it pricey?

I humbly suggest you put a piece of lumber across the top of the companion way (on the bottom in the picture) To keep it from changing dimensions. Actually the whole top could start changing dimensions sitting upside down like that.Same thing happens when car bodies are taken off the frame. Need lots of struts, gussets and whatever to keep it true to it's original shape.

Are you really going to mess with that top? Doesn't look that bad according to your pics. Balsa is not that expensive, for the little you will need.

I'm going to add a strut across the top to keep it from splaying open when I remove the skin. Underneath the top is a cradle I built to the contour of it. It shouldn't distort enough to affect anything much.

The pictures don't tell the full story. The entire cabin top is soft to the touch. If I were to attempt to stand on it, i'd plunge straight through. When they dropped the mast it also tore up the cabin top. I'm going to repair everything properly so I can live with it. I can't stand shoddy work! This and the sole are the only cored parts of this boat, once it's finished I shouldn't have to worry about any other issues concerning that aspect.

40 years of non-maintenance has led to this and I can't stand by and not fix it completely and properly - i'm anal like that!

Here are some of the trouble spots. We'll see how much needs repaired once I start digging in.

Companion way skin is literally bursting and separating.


The rest of these are from the grab rails never being sealed properly, so the majority of the top is mush.




And the stellar repair which is still tacky to the touch.

Just to provide some scale. From the front to the companion way is nearly 6'.


The width at the companion way is over 5'.


Looking closer they are actually equal in size.

So a very nice gentleman got a hold of me on Odayowners and told me he had some parts for sale!

Looks like she'll be getting a new to her mast instead of the banged up mess i've got! We'll be making a trip of it the middle of Oct. to pick it up!

Started making some cuts and doing some exploratory drilling. It looks like most of what needs re-cored is the immediate surrounding area where the tracks for the companion way hatch are. For whatever reason screws were missing and mis-matched allowing the easiest ingress for water. Previous owners really stink! Here's some really trashed core!









Are we having fun yet?
