1985 Valero Recore /transom/restore

Post by Knappy44CE » Jul 14, 2016 11:59 am

Just saved a 1985 Valero V bottom in some serious need of love. The boat has been butchered with layers of paint on the top half. The original floor was rotten so the guy just screwed 3/4" sheets of plywood down over top and 2 of the deck screwed went right through the bottom of the boat near the sides and they cover the plywood in a fake wood rubber flooring.

I got all the rotten floor out and cut a square of glass out of the bottom and the core is like wet cardboard. Stringers are rotten too.

So who knows about these valeros? From what I gather they have the same bottom as the Viking?

Is there also a core in the pad area between the stringers?
