I just purchased a 76' Sovereign
and am in the process of steam cleaning the interior to remove the leftover nicotine and mold gifted to my by the previous owner. I my quest for clean I came across a mouse hole or two that had been "sealed" by the previous owner with pieces of sheet metal. The mice have since made their way to the surface (a mm or so from the edge of the sheet metal) so a few holes now exist in what appears to be the original plywood base (screwed into place with nickel sized screws?).
Any suggestions on how to deal with such an issue?
I am not aposed to replacing the plywood but I would also like to enjoy the AS for a bit this summer before putting it to sleep for the winter.
Question: Should I patch the hole (in some other fashion) or replace the plywood?
If I do replace the plywood, do I have to mess with the walls?
Does it unscrew or are the screws (one to grow on)?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and be well.
