Hughes 38 Renovate Renew

I am in In Ontario Canada and will begin a repair and renovation project for my 1977 Hughes 38 mk3 in the spring. I hope this post will attract helpful suggestions, questions or info regarding general repairs and other helpful information about the Hughes 38.

I intend to replace some deck core. Can anyone tell me the thickness of the balsa core? I am thinking of replacing damaged core with Divinycell H80 PVC structural foam core. https://shop.fiberglasssupply.com/Co...Foam_Core.html.

Re: Hughes 38 Renovate Renew

My mistake: After doing some research and comparing photos, I see it is a Hughes 38 Mk2 and is older than 1977 . The problem is that the hull number plate is missing.

Re: Hughes 38 Renovate Renew

I got my hands on a 83 Hunter 37C that needs some significant deck work. About 8' on each side. I'm hoping to use the same core material to do the repair.

HIN/MIC's were not required in Canada til' 1981 What is a HIN

If the boat was ever registered in Canada and you know the name it was registered under, Transport Canada can tell you when it was built.

Changing core materials can have unintended consequences. Depending on size of area and stress points, materials with different properties may cause more problems than you solve.
