In my opinion, an old Trojan in good condition is one of the most solid boats on the water and in many cases better built than many new boats manufactured today. Hope this helps, I agree 100%... I've not seen many boats with hulls that have the thickness of glass as those on the F series. The guy w...

This was the correct way...don't expect to see the photo inside the message that way, it is just a link for us to go to which is the best way as it reduces the amount of data stored in the forum.

Best match and price I could find for my F32 was here: http://www.a1foamandfabrics.com/site/product.cfm?id=59751EC3-A96B-4435-8943FDF16DD468A5 It is the Nautolex product which I believe is the same as at Sailrite from looking at the picture. Google Nautolex and you will have many suppliers to choose...

Can you give more details on this job?
What is the construction of the bridge floor? Wood plank with balsa ontop?
thickness of balsa?
I have a small patch that will need work and am planning to do it myself.

The nonskid surface of the deck is what I am trying to preserve. The non skid gel in my photos was applied with a roller much like what one would use to do a stucco ceiling. I kind of like the look compared to the crosscut finish non skid decks I have seen and the non skid property is very good whe...

Peter, I'm not sure you gain much by putting in pockets of vertical strength like that. The job of removing bad stuff and putting in new is quite easy... it is the final finish and gel work that requires some skill and experience. With what I know now to save money I would do the removal and replace...

Thanks for the input. I find that hearing other opinions only increases the knowledge base. Since I have already removed the botton layer of glass in the rope locker section I have committed myself to making the repair from below. No problem but would suggest you move to the top should you need to ...

Core replacement was Re: Another New Guy

The new "Sea Breeze" is glass, and requires far less maintenance. The winter project this year is to repair the balsa core on my front deck. I have a number of soft spots on the deck. I have only just started, but what I have found is worse then I expected. I have decided to leave the deck intact a...
