I was readying my new/old Albacore (~1969) for painting and as I continue to take off various equipment I discovered that the wood along the centerline, including where the mast butt attaches (this area had been repaired) was all rotted out and as I pulled back and investigated, it is clear that the area needs to be completely cleaned out and replaced.
I have never done fiberglass work (except small patching and repair on my Laser or on a boat I was caring for). So, while I am disappointed about the extra repairs, I am determined to bring this old beauty back to life.
For those with the experience, especially on this area of the boat, I would love to know the best practice for steps to make these repairs so I can get out on the water by this summer at least.
All advice welcome, thanks in advance.
