Aye! We're taking on water!

Hey guys!

We got the initial clean-up work done on our 36RLE and now I'm getting into some of the water damage that was due to a really, really (really) bad roof. The actual roof damage is easy to see and fix, inside and out. What I'm concerned about, is what's hiding behind the walls, especially near the floor... The wall boards are buckled in spots, as I would expect. The exterior is fiberglass over stick frame, so I pretty much need to do everything from inside. My question, before I start removing interior panels is, what's the construction like at the floor/wall joints? Is there metal under the floor around the edges? Any known gotchas?

Thanks in advance!
Lorne

No, I don't think it's in the wrong area. Some may have been out off 'cause they didn't know what a 36RLE was, but it shows in your Profile that it's a Spinnaker. I think it's just that very few people on these forums have torn their internal walls out so have no idea what the construction is like.

Hopefully someone will see this and can give you an answer.
