Swan 44 Cabin Sole
This is what's left of the cabin sole
This is the view looking aft. All the
panels were rotted. Only a couple of
the panels were good for patterns.

As you can see the bilge is very
shallow and this is one of the reasons
the panels rot, there is no place for the
water to go when the boat heals.
It looks a lot worse than it is. The
removal process is very methodical
and straight forward and time
consuming but it is the only way to fix
