Restoring a Cleopatra 23

The boat was sinking on it's mooring!
pretty fast! We had to get it out quickly as Diesel was seeping into the marina and posing a pollution hazard.

We pumped out the water and managed to float her!

The engine was covered in sludge from the marina , as was the cockpit and all lockers etc.

We recovered the boat from the water and took it up to our factory for extensive renovation works. The engine and gearbox were removed and completely overhauled.
The interior was stripped, refurbished and rewired.
The boat was sprayed with polygloss and antifouled. New windows and steering system were installed along with stainless handrails.

 Extra Floor Bearers were fitted and bonded to the hull superstructure as requested by the owner.
These were covered with 1200g/m2 of glassfibre to seal and strengthen.

 A Hardwood  19mm plywood floor was fitted to the bearers and covered in glassfibre for protection and to seal and tie in to the existing laminate.
Polyeurathane  expanding foam was then poured under the floor to give structural strength and buoyancy.
  The gellcoat was repaired on the underside of the boat and the floor area was finished in a hardwearing, non-slip gellcoat. Job Done! 
 
An Alaska 500, with a floor problem!

 This is a serious floor problem!
Water was seeping through the anchor locker and going under the flooring.

There was no way for the water to drain away and as a result, the wood rotted from the underside until the floor completely gave way!. 
The stringers were found to be not sealed properly and as a consequence, they rotted  and  collapsed! 
  
Action Taken !
