Dry Rot
I have just purchased an old RL24 needing lots of love and TLC. I have found Dry Rot in the ply [under fibra glass] under the companionway and one side of the cock pit seat. The floor to the cockpit feels to springy and I wonder about the ply under the cock pit floor. Can I fix it by injecting more foam? Do I need to remove the foam to chech the ply? Any sugestions or previous experience apreciated. Greg

Talk to Pat McCartin at Kelly's Fibreglass, Hervey Bay, phone 07 4125 1510, fax 07 4125 1922. Pat owns "Sirius", sail #3 and therefore the oldest RL24 afloat. Last I saw it, it looked like new; he has done a lot of restoration and modification (it is now a D/K). If anyone would be able to tell you the best way to go about fixing your boat, it would be Pat.
