As I was sanding, prepping and poking around my 85 13' Scamp
I found another big job...
#1 The spare tire mount was cracked... I removed the tire, sanded the area, glassed and filled the holes... I hate the mount on the back, anyone ever mount the spare under the trailer? I can't find any hits with the search function.
#2 The previous owner had put bolts right through the body to mount the table? So, I removed them and water came out of the hole? I started pushing on the inside of the wall where the table mounts and it was all "squishy"! Out came the grinder and chisel. The board that was glassed in the the rear inside for the table to mount to was nothing but mush. I think that someone ripped the table out of the factory hole years ago and rather then use an anchor and use the same hole, they drilled all the way through and used bolts. This they did not water proof! water came in through the bolts and rotted the transom type board....
I think I might just build a column style table mount? Or, I could reglass a new transom in place and remount the table the original way.. any suggestions?
I'll post pictures next week.... my camera is on the frtiz.
