More staring today, but I got a game plan so time wasnít wasted. Where the manual bilge pump is attached thereís been a leak for many many years and all the core in that area has dry rotted.

What Iím going to do is remove the manual bilge pump and remove all the rotten plywood till I get to glass, Iíll do that in the vertical and the floor area as well. Once Iím down to solid core I think Iíll just rebuild in pure glass and integrate the mount for the ram into that, I donít think Iíll have strength issues that way.

I also marked exactly where the center is, then where 30į and 35į is. Took a few pictures but not sure itís very visible, marked with a sharpie.
