I think that water eventually finds its way everywhere. I have seen it get in any crack or crevice that it can. That foam resists for a long time but eventually... It will work its way past that foam too and into any void. Foam is a blessing and a curse.

Not tryin to rock the boat, but I saw that another designer was making his plans available in PDF. He just did it in the past 2 months.

Thanks!! I could tell, just by working with it, that the peel strength was less. I had never heard of that term, but found that sometimes I got a good bond and other times it wasn't so good.

Anyon know how stain resistant the lighter colors are? This seems like a great option, as it seems more difficult to chip when things are dropped on it. If it stains easily or is hard to clean, it would be a serious drawback.

I have used Coosa extensively in a production boat rebuild. They make a 1.5" 20-25# density board for transoms. Lighter weight stuff for other parts depending. It holds a screw pretty well, but not as well in the lighter stuff. It is light, but not as light as divinicell/Kledgecell. It is also much ...
