I've just started replacing the overhead on a 1968 Coronado 25. A soft deck
lead me to chip away at the overhead until I discovered I was removing the core
. Now my plan is to replace the entire overhead with a polyester resin lay up of (top-to-botton) mat/mat/roving/mat/roving/mat/roving/1/4" ply/epoxy cloth & resin, covering the visible part of the overhead and tabbing the play into the sides of the cabin
I also removed both hatch
coaming cores, solid but rotted pieces of wood.
Now I'm looking at removing the bulkheads and compression
posts beneath the mast step. The portion of the bulkhead that supports the mast appears to be a forward curved beam and an aft curved beam, and plywood
between them. I've taken every bolt and screw I can find out of the aft-facing athwartships beam but can't pry it off. Anybody have a sequence of steps to remove the beams and bulkheads in a C25?
Thxs in advance.
