recoring foredeck and side deck

I am going to re-core the foredeck and the side deck of my catalina 27. Wondering do I need to brace the vberth when recoring the deck from the inside? I am going to do it in 3 steps. 1 foredeck /2 port side deck /3 starboard side deck,

Thanks everyone in advance

Re: recoring foredeck and side deck

Yes! just like in auto restoration plan on bracing, and cross members to keep hull from moving/out and or changes in height of deck and coach house. "If it can move, it will"

Re: recoring foredeck and side deck

Markus;

I have the same task ahead of me with a Watkins 27. My proposed plan it to do it in sections, leaving "strips" here and there; dependent on existing structure, etc....say.. half the fore-deck/starboard, then the opposite side. If yer going to re-core from the inside; does that mean you'll leave the topside deck? If so, you might not need to brace a lot?? Perhaps use cut-to-fit, temporary stringers on the outside of the fore-deck?? Like stringers in the hull, they will maintain the shape and hold the deck from sagging under it's own weight or shifting when removing the underpinning core and sub deck. As in the dreaded "Battens" thread, fit several transverse stringers and one central fore-aft strongback. Judicious use of a few screws and tabs thru the deck will hold. Holes can be filled later. Come to think of it..that's nt a bad idea in my case, too
It won't take much bracing. A 27-whatever doesn't have *that* big of a fore-deck. Do the side decks separately. Taking too much out at once , as Denise said, will lead to twist and collapse.
Is the Vee part of the liner, and is it only tabbed or filleted totally to the hull? Make sure the hull is supported well and evenly. I've used scribed, cardboard cut outs with a plumb and level line, mirror-imaged to maintain even shape in the past. Worked well for me

Best of luck...and keep us posted as ya go.

Re: recoring foredeck and side deck

Don't recore it from the inside!

Last summer I did some extensive recoring of the deck on my Columbia 43 - from above - about 50 square feet.

It is a big & bad & sticky & itchy enough job without fighting gravity the whole time. Just resign yourself to doing a KiwiGrip coating on the deck when you're done.

If you try to recore from underneath I can almost guarantee you will end up with a substandard bond, at least in some areas and a substandard job overall.

It might even put you off sailing, certainly off working on boats ever again.

Re: recoring foredeck and side deck

I agree with sloopjonb, I did a small portion of my side deck from the under side what a messy , gravitationly challanged job, and that was just a 1' by 3' section. Any thing more, I would go in from the topside and finish with the Kiwi, It hides all kinds after such an operation.. GL

Don't be put off - it's also very satisfying - just do it from above - Please.

There's a reason why many people regard a soft deck as a deal killer but as long as you're reasonably young & foolish it needn't be.

PM me if you need any tips or advice about the job - it's fresh in my mind - for a few more weeks at least.
