    That area is fairly easy to repair and the problem is typically a leak from eth drip rail on the front.

    If all other wood areas are good I would suspect someone has taken great care of the boat or that it has had repairs completed in the past.

    Here are a few of the areas that can become problems due to wood on the 45.....

    - fly bridge deck all

    - bow winch back to the seat deck area

    - Arch

    - Fly bridge seats

    - Fly bridge deck

    - Wood behind windows on the sides of the Pilothouse

    - Davit base and sides

    - fly bridge overhangs on the sides

    - Strut bolt anchoring locations

    - these wood platforms below: the water heater(s), fresh water tanks, holding tank, batteries, AC units, etc

    Hope this helps

    - engine stringers (rarely a problem)

    4588 pilothouse overhang rot-gctid825716

    I'm looking at a 4588. It has rot/softness on the underside of overhang of the flybridge, above the pilithouse windows.

    All other deck areas are good. Is this easily repairable? Diy, or sign of deeper problems there?
