I have a similar problem on my boat but it does not have a cored deck.
This is very surprising Charlie. Almost all boats have a cored deck for the strength and savings in weight. It could be plywood, foam or end grain balsa but it is almost certain to be cored. Else, what has the deck lifted from?

Re: We Try a New Technique (to Us) for Dealing with Soft Decks

I used a similar method to repair a delaminated bulkhead on my Grampian. Drilled a bunch of 1/16 holes all over one side, and then injected west system with a syringe into the bottom hole. As it started leaking out holes higher up, I stuffed match sticks into them and the epoxy would move on and start coming out other holes. More match sticks and finally the whole area was saturated. In the end the match sticks got sanded down and touched up with stain. You could see them if you looked for them but nothing blindingly obvious.
