Does this have a core or is it molded?
I have already removed one piece of the cabin top and cleaned out the rotten core. I want to continue by removing the fiberglass over the companionway. I need to cut to the outside of the tracks that the companionway cover slides on. My concern is how hard it will be too remove the fiberglass here. I know that when I removed the fiberglass skin under the mast, it was very hard to get it to release in places that were not delaminated and not rotten. I think it would be almost impossible to get the fiberglass to release if this piece is molded over a piece of wood. So I am asking anyone here if they know if the tracks are molded over a wood core or if they maybe were pre-molded and then fiberglassed into place and are hollow?
If you had to remove the plywood under this area and you are pretty sure that the rot goes under these tracks, how would you go about it?
BTW, this is on a Helms 24.
