The deck is now clear. I am getting to like the space. Perhaps real teak decks? And to make up the budget shortfall, a deck char and tiller steering.
I had to resort to a 4" bolster and lump hammer to remove the console. Fortunatly I managed not to damage the console too much.
Next job is to remove the sound floor which may be the hardest part. That will be a job for my trusty reciprocating saw. I am trying to keep the dust, and the itching, down by using low speed cutting tools.
The aft end of the deck was one bit of 10' x 5' x 1/2" ply. I am not sure you can get 10 x 5 sheets of 18mm (3/4"), so I may have to stick with 1/2" or go for 3 sheets of 8 x 4.

Thanks for the tips. I am watching the colour of the fluff.
When the fuel tank is out I will jetwash the inside of the hull and slosh loads of Armillatox around, before putting anything back.
