    Well, disassembly has started. I would say I'm about half way into disassembly, and boy oh boy.

    NONE of the fastners come off easily. I've had to drill countless bolts, cut others with a sawzall. Just a whole big mess.

    Started to see what the carpet had to hide, and yep, it's bad;

    So...the good part.... I know that whatever plywood that I choose to use to rebuild it will be a TON better than this chipboard crap. At the moment I think I am going to use X exterior rated 3/4" plywood then sealed with Behr waterproofing. More work to follow.

    That “chipboard crap” is much better than plywood.
    Get Advantech subflooring. Stronger and stiffer
    than plywood and won’t delaminate. Largely water-
    proof but go ahead and seal it before installing.
    You won’t regret it when done.

    Yeah? I'll admit, while I can work with wood, I dont know all the intricacies of it. I have definitely been looking around for a suggested brand/type of product. I'll definitely give the Advantech a try. There's a dealer in town.

    So I'm obviously continuing to use this thread as my journal/blog for the rebuild. I had estimated I would need to put about 40 hours into this, and being at 10 right now, I think I'm about on track.

    Anyhow, pictures!

    I am pretty convinced that the previous owner/s parked this poor thing in a lake, and just left it;

    So today I worked on more disassembly, and processed a lot of the aluminum parts getting them cleaned up. The piano hinges are rough.

    Hit those with a wire cup and the went over with some wd40 and scotch brite pads. It's very pitted. I think I'm going to go over it with some silver paint...jury is still out on that. I dont want the hinges to bind up.

    I also got to work on waterproofing the bed panels. I only got to one today but hey progress is progress.

    I went with the advantech subflooring as suggested, but the downside is that it's a bit thicker than the 1/2" crap that was originally on there. Super strong and I'm happy with it thus far, but I'll have to adjust some measurements, and buy some larger aluminum trim when its time to finish her up.

    Spirits are high. I'm not stalled in anything and there's so much to do I can vary my work. One obstacle that I'm slowly overcoming is the anchored screws on the piano hinges are a pain. They are seized up but becuase the wood is so rotted they spin when I try to drill em out. I'm trying not to bend the hinge but it's tough. Had to hit it with the dremel on a few.
