KK42 Top Deck Issue and "Ribs"

I have some soft spots in the upper deck on my 1985 KK42 upper deck and will need to open that up. I am guessing that is a plywood core? And the "ribs" that are visible in the cabin - those are formed in fiberglass and not wood cored? If you have gone through this process, photos would be incredibly helpful.

John: I no longer have the core samples but Hobo’s (#120) boat deck it had non-skid on fiberglass over 3/4” or 5/8” plywood. Under that was the molded headliner for the salon.

Good luck on your project.

When I repaired mine I had 3/4" plywood squares about 4"x4" between the top and bottom layers of glass.

Thanks Larry and Scott. That's more or less what I thought. The fiberglass guys thought there might be wooden beams in the molded headliner. I didn't think so.

Larry - good to see you still on the Forum. My neighbor, who was interested in Hobo, is still talking about how is missed the chance . . . he bought a Selene and is now working through a lot of poorly maintained systems.

Larry,


You may want to look at the drawing for the deck construction.

Hull 61 has wood beams, but beneath the fiberglass inner skin of upper deck. I will try to post pics tomorrow

Scott - looked at the photos on you website. Incredibly helpful and I have book-marked the site for future projects (like the bow pulpit and removal of teak decks). A huge thank you for your meticulous documentation.

John, glad you found them. I was trying to attach pics from a more recent repair around hatch area, but pics must be too big.
