48 Year-Old Cored Deck - Bone Dry

so i cut a 2" hole for the anchor hawse on my 1962 islander 24' project and the old plywood core is %100 bone dry, i could not believe it but i guess miracles do happen, not all of the deck is cored, but what is, is in unbelievably good shape note this boat has not been in the water in 20 years, but sitting on a trailer exposed to the elements... i will splash her on wendesday, cant wait!

Excellent! I'm having my '65 Grampian put in the yard later this month and I have my fingers crossed. She'll be out for the duration of a refit and I can't wait to get started.
