Topic : Are you qualified to mend you own boat?

took a chisel to my boat last night....and now i wish i hadnt. 
there should have been someone to stop me.

"that bit of excess wood needs removing"
"yes, but you're not skilled enough."
"how hard can it be? i'm careful."
[sound of ripping wood fibres]
"oh s***."

on the port side i found the jib track support was secured to the hull with 3 (hidden) screws. so i made sure to find all 3 on the starboard side....lever it up - RRRRIP.

there were 4 on that side.

No, I'm too ashamed! 

Lets hope the anti-slip varnish obscures the colour difference between the normal ply face, and the bits where it ripped into the first layer.
