Humber deck/hull layout

I've asked this one before but for a different reason.

I'm considering fitting captive bolts in to the deck of my 2008 6.3m Ocean Pro.
To do this I'll need to cut a couple of access holes in the deck.
I wondered if anyone has any info relating to how any bulkheads or stringers may be laid out beneath my deck or even the thickness of the ply Humber use in their decks?
I want to avoid hitting any obstructions when I cut through.
I've emailed Humber but not heard back yet.
Cheers
Colin

The question of he undersell of an Ocean Pro (in particular the common 6.3) has been asked many a time.

If you get a drawing or photo, please share.

The fact that nobody has ripped a deck up and got photos is probably a good sign of the quality of build in terms of the deck. With so many sold and used for many decades you'd have thought that there would be more threads.

No problem. Any info I get, I'll post.
I've PM'd Nugent - he seems to spend a lot of time chopping bits off Ribs and putting them back!

I can't guarantee this info because I've not cut open an Ocean Pro but I have cut open a Destroyer and an Ocean Offshore and the build method was the same in both, I'd guess that yours is similar.

There are no cross members or bulkheads but there is two mahogany longitudinals for the full length of the hull and the deck is screwed and glassed to them. In my boat they are parallel for their length and if your transom has knees, the knees are butted to the side of the longits so you can estimate their spacing width wise. Again, on my boat, the knees were on the inside face of the longits, that is, towards the center of the boat.

That's a great help. Someone else has told me Humber don't have bulkheads in the Ocean Pro so what you have discovered in your boat sort of backs that up.
Many Thanks

Why not simply give Humber a phone call?..e-mails are just too easily ignored....They should/want to help surly...and with a few words from the workshop it would be sorted.
Like the OP said its come up before

I'm looking at doing something similar to mine.
I have a 2010 Humber 6.5 ocean pro and bottle rack. I'm wanting to move my console forward and turn my bottle rack side ways...... It's just having the understanding of the fixing and hull lay up before I start!
Think in going to give Humber a bell next week.

Cheers
Phil.

Yes. I called them last week and the workshop was busy. The young lady I spoke to told me to send an email and someone would reply.
To be fair, I've emailed them before over various things and have always got a response eventually.
If I don't hear back from my email by midweek I'll try again.
Phil, if you speak to them before, could you post on here? I'll do the same with any info I get.

Further to info from JWalker and Nugent. I've had a tap around on the deck and it seems that, as advised, there are only two longitudinals running from the transom knees and parallel toward the bow.
Having read Humber posts over the years, I'm half expecting to find the underside of the deck to be untreated.
I'll post another thread to gather advice on this as I expect people with experience of deck remedial work but no interest in Humber deck layouts may not read this thread.
Thanks for info so far.
