Okay so I found one little patch of delamination
under a stanchion where the balsa was more like soup. I cut it out but found the wood around it, although still bonded to the skins, was wet, so I had nothing for my epoxy
and new core
to stick to. I ended up cutting out almost a foot by two feet in order to get to wood dry enough to bond too.
But now as I meter around the area I find it is pretty wet too but definitely not delaminated. Should I cut this out and replace it now that I have all of my deck
fittings up or should I just put it to bed
and not worry about it? I hate choices like this.
I know if I ever have to sell the boat I will have to replace it but am not really in a position now where I have the time, money
, or energy to cut up massive sections of my deck
