    Also have to figure out a drain system for the floor where the oil reservoir and batteries go under the rear deck. Also adding 3/16" aluminum to the outside of the transom to beef it up a little. Overall the transom is pretty solid. Just doing what i can to beef it up a little. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Yeah, gonna try to seal it. A little undecided on what to use for caulk. Would like to have something I could paint over with the epoxy. Have a big tube of 5200 but I dont think its paintable. Am also condidering just using 40 yr. Paintable Dap with silicone. It would remain flexible and about 3 coats of epoxy over it would seal it. I'm going to put at least 3 and maybe 4 drains that will flow directly into the v part of the hull and run directly into the bilge. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    All foam out. Starboard side poured with new foam. Decided to pour and work down high spots. Will then seal foam with epoxy. Didnt want to drill holes in new floor. Trying to stay at least 1/4" below floor with the foam so it can breathe as well as letting the floor be able to dry. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I bought new gas lines. Livewell is solid plastic. Drain molded in. Not really anything to seal on it. I'm not doing the front of the boat at this time. Floor is solid up front. Probably do it in a year or two. The foam that I'm replacing had some areas that were completely saturated. Mainly under the rear deck. The rest of the foam had the bottom soaked but not completely saturated. Went ahead and removed it Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Im also going to try to leave about an inch of space between the foam and plywood. This should help things breath. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Checked with a local spray foam insulation contractor. They wanted $600 to spray. Considering my compartments arent that big I thought that was pretty high. I ordered 4 gals of marine foam from U S Composites. $134. Absolutely the best price that I found anywhere. Just about ready to foam Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I will do some core samples of the foam to see if it is saturated. If it is and I rip it out how do you get new foam in. Manufacturers put floor down then drill holes and pour in the foam. I could do it that way but it looks like it would defeat the purpose since the foam would once again be touching the under side of the plywood.

    Havent been able to work on the boat due to monsoon weather. I like the idea of putting aluminim strips down for separation of the floor and foam, but 1/4" bar stock in the amount that I need is just too pricey. I'm thinking of taking composite deck boards and ripping them down to strips on a table saw to use as spacers. Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    The foam was wet but I've pretty much got it dried out now. Left it open and had a fan on it for 3 days. Took a couple waves over the bow and got caught in a couple monsoon rainstorms. Carpet held the moisture in. Never had a chance to dry out. No more carpet Sent from my SM-G930V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
