Would anyone happen to have pictures or details of what a 5.3 or indeed any Tornado looks like with the deck off/opened up or under construction please?
I've a repair that would benefit from internal access so thought I'd ask before cutting blindly. Tornados have been around for so long I reckon someone's had to replace a diver damaged deck or decided to put in an underfloor tank and might have pix.
If anyone has any advice on the best approach to gaining access and making the deck good afterwards I'd appreciate it. A hatch is not an option.
I plan to work my way along with a reciprocating/sabre saw so hope to feel any bulkheads and stringers before I cut through them. If I can cut it out neatly I should be able to glass in some support under the deck, stick the cut-out back in and then fill the saw slit etc.
Last time - not long enough ago either
- I saw the under deck of a Rib the bulkheads were not attached to the deck so I'm hoping Tornados are the same.
