Re: Pearson 28-2 chain plate and cabin ceiling crack
Roverhi is correct about not waiting. But now, several months along, have you fixed this and could you tell us how. My 1986 Pearson 28-2 measures wet core at the port side chainplate penetration. I'd like to find out if anyone knows if the core is balsa or plywood. Re-coring is pretty serious.
I've had success hole-sawing the deck right below the fastener, in this case your chainplate deck-level plate, then building a rotating tool that will fit through the hole and scraping out the rotted core while vacuuming at the hole from the interior side. BTW was this boat named Zig-Zag?
