1975 Hans Christian 36'
I noticed some rot in there so I started yanking off the platform. Definitely more than surface stuff, it's getting wicked around and there are some decent cavities. I'm not a great wood worker; I get some of the general concepts and I've done them but I don't have a lot of experience. Part of my is just dumb enough to go get some apitong boards and glue them together and try to fashion a new bowsprit. Now that I type that, I think it would be crude and ugly if I even got the fit correct.
I feel a little more comfortable scarfing in some sections and I found a local supplier of apitong. Just wanted to check with you wood gurus to see if I'm on the right track.
As far as "how much rot", I'd say maybe a soda can sized cavity right near the inner stay fitting / chainplate, right where the bowsprit juts off the deck.
