I bought the boat this weekend for $100.00
And you sailed home?????

Sounds like a Killer Deal!

Good Luck with your find.

Leither 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!

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


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

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.
