I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?

Replacing flooring (plywood) underneath aluminum mast plate screwed to it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Any suggestions on how to remove the plywood from underneath the mast base plate?

I bought the boat this weekend for $100.00

1971 27' Morgan

Sailed it down from Trout River to Beaches Marina in Jax Beach. Had a blast. She points so well that you don't even realize how close you are to coming about. My amatuer statis was all to evident in the 15 Knot winds.

I got to get her back out there, but this time in style... I have been spending all week cleaning her up.

I have cleaned the layers and layers of scum due to neglect from the past 2 years. She cleaned up nicely, but the plywood floor has to go, it smells like the rubber mat's behind a bar. She is really sitting high out of the water, it seems the top of the waterline is about 6 inches above the water.

Scummy is the only word to describe it, The plywood is rotted at the bottom. I got most of the floor out but I still need to tackle the flooring underneath the mast. UUHHHGGG.

I was thinking I would have to loosen the standing rigging for this proccess. This is the last phase of my initial interior gutting and cleaning. I got the head operational.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I should have taken a picture of it.

I don't think that loosening the standing rigging will do it for you, to be honest. I suspect that you will either have to get the mast removed or lifted so that you can get under it. If I was doing it, I would remove the mast and check it out along with the rigging - too good an opportunity to miss!
