Foam is coming out fairly easily. Using a small shovel and pry bar to pop it out. Damn lot of foam....

Still don't know exactly were the water got in under the cockpit deck, it did move around to all the compartments. I did find I did not use 5200 around the chase tubes as they went thru the frames. Will know more this weekend when I take out the foam in front and backside of the aft bulkhead. With that foam gone, it will most likely show the three chase tubes not 5200'ed in letting the water come from the aft storage compartments when they were flooded. Same with the foredeck bulkhead, that had drained to the aft, but if there was no sealant around the chase tubes there water would have gotten in under the cockpit deck.....

I can see the difference in my wood composite boat building knowledge... Will be fixing/sealing better as this Facelift moves on.


Got my Kiwi Grip and Totalboat 2 part high build primer in, once the deck is fixed....

Well the open cockpit area has finally dried out again!

Going to fill the side compartments along the hull with BBC foam. Leaving the middle compartments free and clear of anything, plus going to add an 6" round screw out under the center console setup. This should help to check for water..

What a pain this has been, I am hoping all the water that blew in during the tornado, twice as much as before has not done any unseeable damage....

Wishing for cooler weather and being the midpoint of the hurricane season, no storms...

Looks like dirty, hard work. I'm impressed you stood up to it and have no doubt you will finish with a boat better than new.

Wishing you good weather, Dougster
