Re: Damp in Sharki aft Cabin bulkhead

Giorgio Ardrizzi

Hi Mark, it is one of the problems of that series of boats. In the holes under the mizzen tends to stagnate the water and after years there are infiltrations that wet the whole balsa sandwich and also the bulkhead of the aft cabin.
The best thing is to eliminate the rotten part and rebuild the bottom using epoxy resin and fiberglass.
To work well, make an opening in the lower part, under the original hole.  I attach photos.  The same goes for the three lockers below which often have the same problem.
