Just flipped back to the pics... So your getting ready for the deck?

If your pulling the toerails off (wooden?) you may want to look at the hull to deck joint. I don't know how its built but if not glassed in its a good time to reseal it.

When you say rotten core is that under the deck? Have you got access from under? Is it ply or balsa?

Re:
Boat:
Yup, gonna strip the whole enchilada down before we start fixing her up. Deck and hull..

Deck:
The deck is cored with 1/4" end-grain balsa. Soft areas are the entire bow forward of the shrouds, both sidedecks midships under the "toejammers"(which ARE NOT going back! why couldn't the bastard use the cars for the jib lines?), portside cockpit bench fwd of the lazarette, stern deck starboard of the aft lazarette, and the entire cockpit sole. I am thinking of some new drastic actions with the recore job. 1/4" core is all? I may go back with epoxy mat, the bugger'll never break again. Most of the damage is from the deck hardware improper/inadequate/old bedding or none at all (toejammers). Removal will be on top as there is just too much area to be redone. May do the whole thing. It's gonna be a long winter.....

Hull/deck joint:
...is in pretty good shape. It's got that tarry gasket material (butyl?) and doesn't leak (Thank God, about the only thing that doesn't) and all the bolts are tight. Got a little work to do on the ribbing to fix a bit of rot from the stanchion leaks. Probably use CPES then close it up in roving.
