Interior Hull Repair - 17' Montauk
|Author||Topic: Interior Hull Repair - 17' Montauk|

I have 1967 17' Montauk that has holes in the floor back near the transom. This has created a soft spot in the floor. When water gets in the holes we can push on the floor and the water shoots back up through the holes. Can someone suggest a way to repair? Should I just let dry over the winter, or should I remove part of the floor to check on the extent of the damage? How would I go about the latter. Is there any wood in the hull I should be concerned about?
I looked through the last years worth of postings but didn't find much on interior repair. Thanks

mikef, I don't think they started manufacturing Montauks until 1974, so you must have something else. You can check in the "reference" section on this site to determine exactly what model you have. Set your "show topics" selector to one year and scroll through for information on hull repairs. Good luck!

Mr. Spongy Floor-
I remember reading a very interesting posting about a month ago regarding removal of water from the foam, etc, there are some real rocket scientists out there. Don't get hung up on the interior repair, the hull repair process remains the same. I would search again for "hull repair". I also got some information from "lhg" (lhg is a regular and knows his stuff) that BW made up on doing hull repair, very helpful and easy to understand.
