P22 deck attachment......

After undertaking some work inside the hull of my P22, i need to start thinking about attaching my new forward section marine ply deck as the original was damaged during the 'wrecking' process.

The deck sections will consist of 2 x 4' x 4' marine ply panels which will be self tapped in to the main bulkheads and stringers etc of the hull.

However, i am looking for suggestions as to how the deck should be finally sealed.........

Easy options as i see it are sikaflex or epoxy although i have sort of established that the originals were attached with a combination of hatch tape and polysulphide sealant, myself not being familiar with either of these products?????

Does anybody out there have any ideas as to hard wearing products that will be suitable in the long run for this kind of job or, could anybody enlighten me as to the hatch tape/polysulphide method?

Thanks

SEB

ARBOKOL 1000 is a polysulphide and is what was used on my boat but there is no evidence of hatch tape. It looks like they just laid a large bead alone the top of the stringers and screwed the deck down through this. Iíve used ARBOKOL a lot and like it, it is much easier to handle than some sealants and doesnít cost the earth.
Are you going to fit a hatch in the foredeck?

Will give the sealant a go although i may well try and get some hatch tape to fit too.

Did you take the deck up on yours too?

The plan is to put a hatch in the deck - trying to find a fairly decent one which doesnt cost the earth isnt too easy though.

Ideally i want a solid hatch as im afraid that the glass/perspex centred ones will have an anchor or something dropped on them!!

Have you got a hatch in yours des?

On the whole my deck is ok, having said that I might do it in a year or two and fit a new tank at the same time.

I had one of the white ABS hatches to start with but it really wasnít up to the job despite the fact that they say you can walk on them. I now have a vetus Planus 5050 (£140) which is just the right width to fit between the longitudinals. I think this hatch is strong enough and because it is low profile you donít trip over it.

Off the deck subject but des, you seem to know where many of the parts for P22's come from so, what about these......

Steering system and a starter button that will fit the standard inst. panel?

Thinking theres going to be a fair few more queries like these in the not too distant future too!

Cheers
