Hello. I have aquired another N12! 3122 Red Baron. Genrally the decks etc are all in good condition but there is some quite serious delamination of the ply inside the hull floor. My plan was to remove as much of the old rotten ply as possible back to solid and laminate with e-glass and epoxy building up layers to add strength. Where this has occured arounf the floor and the centre bpoard case I intend to epoxy fillet to again create strength. It won't be a work of art but will keep the old girl alive and sailing. There are a number of other items that need to be carried out but think I can deal with these, but the delamination issue is my biggest concern and wandered whether there were any other tips/steer that can be offered before I begin my epic journey to get her on the water ready for the Desborough open next year.
I do have pictures but size limits me adding them on this site.
Many thanks in advance.
