Re: oh what to do with a leaky hull-deck cavity?

Wouldn't polyurethane foam be more appropriate in this condition? It would swell and fill-up the entire area. It would cure properly even if the inside is still moist. I can slice the joint into sections (say 6 foot long each for example) and fill them up one at a time, controlling that the area gets filled with the foam before it begins to expand.

However I've never used that material before.
