Can anyone help with the internal (i.e below deck) structure and layout of a 7.5m Cobra Picton please? Iím looking to make a helm seating modification and unsure what lies below, how thick the deck is etc.
Thanks

Yes, but mainly worked out via lots of awkward measurements. What do you need to know and is it for the same 7.5m Picton?

The tank is mounted centrally running from under the console to back past the helm seating. It runs between the central rails of which I can provide a measurement from centre line later when I get home.
I can’t see that there is an easy option to get it out without either cutting out a large section of deck or replacing the whole deck. Depending on how bad the split is (is it a split or a hole) you might be able to seal it with a fuel tank repair or simply create an access hole to it. It is made of alloy although it looks like stainless ( at least mine does!). Removal of the helm seat is a task in itself. It is stuck with sikaflex and is very difficult to remove. If you do remove it, you will need silicone remover and a rounded wire brush on a drill to remove it without damaging the anti-slip on the deck too much. You will not easily be able to replace the anti-slip texture.
The deck is 18mm ply with about 5mm glass fibre coating either side.

Thanks for the info - need to get someone in to do that - I dont have the skill set or time for such a job.
