Question delamination, fix the deck

Hi,
I'm embarking on a project which I can't wait to start. I'm purchasing a
45 year old fiberglass, 43 foot sail boat. Good pedigree and racer.
There are soft sections on the deck. I have decided to attack this problems from the top to keep our costs down and paint the deck with a non skid paint.
Comments would be appreciated. Especially trying to save the exsiting non skid surface if possible??

Search for recoring deck. Should bring up some good threads with pictures. I did a large section on my boat in 08 and will be doing the port side of the deck this winter hopefully. I went from underneath as it was easier in my case.

You can save the outter skin and reuse the nonskid, but you better be really good at working with gelcoat.

tommays will become famous soon enough
well

from what i have done and seen a LOT of what and how you do it will vary by how the boat is built

My Cals inner skin is only hely in by one layer of glass at the edges making removing the outer skin a bad pick

No matter how you go as soon as one skin is removed the deck will not be able to support much weight and you have to carefull about keeping the shape

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