    My father and I are refitting out a Carver 27’ Montego And now we have reached the engine, we have removed the OMC King Cobra 4.3 V6’s and legs and purchased a single diesel Volvo AD41a and DP-E leg.

    I’ve removed the old engine bearers and the laminate holding them a ground back to the original hull.

    I need help in coming up with the laminate to go back again, also can I use something lighter than the ply that was used, the bearers were incredible heavy, one more than the other due to water getting in (this boats has been poorly finished :eek: ).
