Hello! Just bought a Beachcomber
TM15 ‘79. Extensive floor rot so replacing plywood. All the Beachcomber
floors I have seen have an inset into the fiberglass that allow for wood “cross beams” - mine does not have these. The plywood was layed directly on the fiberglass.
My question: I was planning on glueing down 1/2” x 3” cedar “cross beams” then laying the plywood floor on top of those and then running carriage bolts through both to the frame.
I would love advice on how to do this, if it’s a good idea, etc
Or do I need to have the “cross beams” at all?
The 1st photo of the cleaner fiberglass floor is not mine - but is another Beachcomber
floor to show as an example of the “cross beams” that I will try to replicate.
The other fiberglass floor is mine (showing no cross beams
