hey guys, I just wanted to say you have all inspired me, and you may have single handedly saved my '72 from a scrap yard... I bought this last year for $300, and I'm sure I got what I paid for. when I bought it, I had to pump out a few hundred gallons (I'm guessing) of water, as it has no cabin door and a major (or a few) storms had come through and sunk it. The pond it was in was shallow enough that boat didn't sink, but the cabin was about half full of water... Anywho, it has a main sail that doesn't belong, no jib or other sail for that matter, no forestay (its a rope) missing some hardware I'm sure, and very dirty.

Anyway, I'm also new to sailing and bought this boat as my entry, as it was advertised "sailable" which, I suppose it could be, sort of... But I'm going to get started on getting all the parts and hardware together and installed properly, and take it for a few sails before I start painting.

What I want to know is how the heck do you take the deck of. I have never heard of that, and when looking at someones rebuild project (I'm sorry, i don't know whos, but it is saved under my favorites) and they had done that, then this last pic of it elevated, I think my job may have just become easier...

I'm glad to be in such company as yours, seriously!

separating the deck from the hull is pretty easy.

remove any shelves and molding (you've probably got woodgrain vinyl over thin plywood) covering the joint on the interior and you'll see there's about 100 bolts coming through from the exterior. pull the vinyl rub rail insert from the aluminum rubrail on the exterior, and you'll see the flathead bolts. get a partner and unbolt all those... after doing that i worked the joint from the exterior with a stiff putty knife and it pretty much popped loose... yours s/b pretty easy after a long soak.

other than that, all you've got holding the deck to the hull are the mast support and the cockpit drain/support pillar... good luck

That sounds easy enough... Is it easy to put back on? I'm assuming just the reverse. About the drain tube, I don't remember that, but I saw a compressed one on the V17 that the deck had sunk on, any tricks for that, or just as simple? Also, I don't have a mast support... Should I? the deck seems solid, just missing paint...

I'm a long way off from this, but paint. I've been reading all your posts on rehabs, and I've read Epoxy, latex acrylic, I haven't heard anybody say anything about gelcoat? I have a $300 boat, I'm not looking to sink a ton of money in it (which I will anyway I'm sure) but what looks good, will last well enough, and be acceptable for resale. Also, someone somewhere did (I think) something called ice blue for their textured grip areas. Mine was white with blue, and I would like it to be again. Any thoughts?
