Default 88 Pachanga 32

I recently picked up an 88 Pachanga 32 that needed a new starboard motor. New motor is almost out of the machine shop, just need to get cam and lifters for it. Now the bad part...
I missed a bunch of rot under the cockpit when i was looking at it and now have to decide whether or not to fix it or part it out. Has anyone had any experience on these taking the fuel tanks out and redoing the stringers and bulkheads?

Took the seats out tonight and got the fuel tank access panel up. Gonna have to get a couple fuel drums to drain the tank so I can get it out. The floor supports are ok but all the bulkheads and I'm assuming the stringers are shot. Won't know until I get the tank out.

It's a labor of love, but will be worth it when it's done.

Congrats!! Any pictures??

Thanks...I sure hope so...was pretty discouraged when I found all the rot. What a bad design...I'm gonna try to put in pvc so there is a path all the way to the rear bilge.
I'll get some...gotta setup a share site acount as you can't attach

Yeah that's the one...it was on craigslist. He bought it in St Petersburg fl. He was on his way to the PPP last summer and the starboard motor threw a rod.
