That might explain it then.

Marine ply is WBP but made from higher quality timber with no large knot repairs and no voids.
Good quality faced WBP is probably reject marine stuff.

Mine has a slightly chequered history. I would not like to say that mine was constructed to the usual standard.

Progress to date.

The floor came out remarkably easily with a little help from the old scottish screwdriver, aka angle grinder. I can honestly say it is not a job to do on a hot day. That dust really sticks to sweat.

It now looks like the port deck bearer may have been contaminated when fitted back in 1997ish. If that is the case, I think the whole thing has held together supprisingly well. Admittedly I would have prefered to find hardwood or ply - BWMs were known for being cheap.

1) Rear deck cleared and tank exposed (53l of liquid gold removed).
2 & 3) Port $ St'bd deck bearers (port to port etc)

Well that about it for the demolition stage.
The tank was bedded in with filler , and required a bit of TLF with the crow bar.
I am going to try to peel the tube tape off the inside of the hull and drop the tubes outside and below to keep them out of the way. If that fails, I will remove them completly.

So why did it happen?
Cheap build spec. is mostly to blame.
As far as I can tell, the port deck bearer was contaminated with rot before building. These bearers wer secured to the stringers with a mixture of St/St screws and mild steel screws (they may have been very poor quality St/St).
The soft screws rusted away over time allowing the rot to escape through the resultant holes. The floor was not well supported and flexed, resulting in the resin coat on the underside to crack. The rot then entered the floor through these cracks.

That looks better, is it worth changing the fuel tank sender whilst it's easily accessable. I think they were tempo items and when I tried to change mine in January for another 5 bolt one the holes didn't line up. Oh and then the chandler told me Tempo had gone bust and the importer couldn't help so put the old one back in.

The question is who has less work to do for the RB Powerboat race start in 8 days time, you or John Fuller

Pete.
Thats good advice, except the sender is purely there sto stop the fuel getting out. The gauge used to flap about so much it was useless, even on dry land. Unlike most, I seem to have an acurate Navman 3100 flow meter.
Just in case I change my mind, I will be putting a hatch back over the sender.
