I am toying with the idea of getting a hughes
38 that is clearly in need of TLC. Specifically the exterior deck
seems have allowed intrusion over the winter while the boat
was very poorly kept uncovered in northern ohio
. Possibly more than one winter, as the gentleman seems unsure.
What I am curious to know is any real world experiences you folks might have about the CORRECT and PROPER way to effect this repair? I could use any advice
or info available and if you know of links or sites that have info that would be great as well. I am seeing intrusion and the indirect effect of it on all the interior
bulkheads and interior deck
. Is this something that should be left to the boneyard? The edges of all interior millwork is rotten and delaminated.
I do not mind the work
and effort as I am retired. I have all the necessary shop space and tools, but I have never attempted what seems to be such a structural repair. Or am I making more of it in my mind than is real?
