I am certainly getting the typical use of a boat model forum that a new owner enjoys...
I am trying to figure out how to remove my floor so I can have a look at and possibly the probably very nasty vermiculite and replace my broken bilge hose. Another goal is to clear a drainage from aft of the bilge (via the "hidden bilge"?), possibly by removing the vermiculite?
I have drilled out a bunch of bungs but don't see any screws. Also, it looks like the floor comes off of the fiberglass lip around the inside of the bilge in this model, though I have seen other photos here of the floor coming up and leaving no glass barrier around the bilge?
If you remove the vermiculite, is there anything supporting the floor in this model? Do you have to build and glass new stringers?
