previous owner had dropped something heavy on deck a long time ago and I can't remember what, but I see hair cracks which must have let water
through into the core. Naturally, because of the SCRIMP built process, it is limited to just the small spot with the cracks because each piece of balsa is completely encapsulated with vinylester resin
It is so small that I'm not even gonna peel the skin; current
plan is to drill some 1/4" holes all the way through and then one or two 1.5" holesaw entry points from below to fix the core, then close up the bottom and inject resin from the top holes. As always, plans change normally
I'm lucky to have good access from below.
There's always the Fein Multimaster if it needs more surgery
