Re: Would you buy an early 80's cored hull boat?

A guy hired me to advise him on a boat he had bought on the east coast without a survey. He brought the boat to Seattle and wanted me to tell him how to go about fixing the delaminated deck. He had removed some of the inner skin. What came out was like wet coffee grounds. That's the best way I can describe it. I have no idea what it was when it went in the boat and I sure as hell couldn't figure out what was coming out. Everthing about this boat was a disaster. I told him to salvage the rig and the almost new engine and run like hell. The boat was severly out of trim, floating unusually high and I had serious doubts about how the boat was ballasted.

There is one hell of a Polish joke in there somewhere.

Yes, the picture show what they found after taking off the outer skin.

I should have copied this text also

The photo above shows the hull of Prospero with the outer GRP laminate removed. It wasn't difficult to pull the GRP off, since it had never been stuck on properly in the first place.

Yeah - if that's the repair work, the original "bad workmanship" must have been a sight to behold.

Re: Would you buy an early 80's cored hull boat?

BTW guys the 57' "yawl" was Bandera a Hinckley built in 1994 apparently before they infused the resin... It was nice of Cuyler and his crew to not publish that they were repairing a Hinckley, at Morris, for structural issues...

A local sailmaker in here in Yarmouth, ME also had his C&C totally recored. It took all winter and was done in smaller sections than Morris did. They had to do this to retain hull shape. This was a C&C 37XL and had fairly thin skins thus the small sections at a time. It cost big money... The thing I remember most was the pungent smell of the rotting balsa as they cut into it and the brown goo came out...

I'm thinking you'd have to REALLY like your boat to put that kind of money into a repair.

I don't know what they mean by "dramatic core repair but from the photos it looks pretty extensive.

Morris Yachts Core Repair - Professional BoatBuilder Magazine.
That will be 6 figures just in labour. IMHO the boat wasn't built right in the first place - all the kerfs should have been folded open and resinated before laying it in the mould - either that or bagging it to suck resin into the kerfs. That way each block of core is isolated with no water paths left open.
