Hello,
After pulling up the flooring, bunks etc. I found bad rot under the streetside rear bunk (under the water tank). The surfside's belly is fully glassed and gelcoated, and on the inside the plywood floor is fibreglassed over around the edges.
Has anybody replaced the plywood on these Surfsides? Is the wood just glassed in at the edges or is the wood all resined in ?
Thanks
Kevin

It looks like the water tank was sweating and dripping on the floor for some time . I'm not sure what i would do if it was me but i'll tell you what i have done with my boler . I had a 9 " hole in the floor so i cut it square and made a patch ,the i used a piece 1/8 " steel and screwed it to the underside , make sure the steel is large enough to distribute the weight . I then glued in plywood and fiberglassed it over . Then i layed down a sheet vinyl . This has proven very effective .

If I owned a Surfside, I'd be following peterh's topics about modification and repair of his Surfside. Those of us that have followed his Scamp modifications, know the man is very knowledgeable, uses quality products and has stellar techniques. We're fortunate he documents his progress very well.

Here's a Surfside topic, where he's replied: Glassing a replacement floor, Necessary?

and his own topics: Surfside Refit Saga and Replacing the floor
