I am working on refurbishing and updating a 1966 @ 37foot Aluminum Roamer. I've been at it since October of 2007 and have completed the deck work aft rebuild and steering station and upper cabin work.
My rear deck had mushrooms growing on the timbers. I didn't find any rubber pads when I demo-ed the rear deck. But i did incorporate soundproofing ( a total of 2-inches thick when i rebuilt the deck). I'm wondering after all my add on-s if she will float?

ask for access.
I figure that I have another 2 years in before Caledonia is done.
