I would not sweat it, just pore more foam to fill it up and move on.
This I can do. This little boat needs to be in the water! :lol:

Sealing foam question....

If I am pouring foam onto cut foam, should I seal the cuts with epoxy first or is it safe to pour foam onto the cuts and then seal what's left?

See the picture below of a channel I cut in the foam. This is specifically what I am asking about. :help:

Barry after the same problem with my foam pour, too hot outside, too hot of boat and too hot of a foam mix it shrank. I had the boat out in the sun and had the two parts of the foam out there too. I will never do that again.

Anyway, I was testing the foam (inside room temp) and brushed the foam mix onto the old (few months old now) foam to see if it would stick. It did, next I mix another small batch brushed the old foam and covered it with plastic sheet a piece of plywood on top. Sealed and looked very clean. This may work for you. Cool foam mix, brushed on cool surface and covered. The brush puts down a very light coat. Have everything ready before you start. Good luck....

Bob.
