Blackened floor of cedar strip boat
(Wakefield Quebec, Can.)
I would like to restore this 58 Peterborough...
When the plywood floor was removed exposing the original floor there appears to be a burned or blackened look...
Is this mold...
It looks like someone put some clear coat over the stain.

It could be mold if moisture was trapped between the plywood and the original.
Or, perhaps more likely, it is the remains of the glue or bedding compound used when the ply was fitted???
Is there any damage to the original?
Any obvious reason why it was covered?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
