Re: How much deck over the cabin do I remove?

This looks really nasty.. hard to believe now that the entire cabintop deck isn't saturated, big job...

SF is correct, of course, that delamination (found by the tap test) is not an indication of wetness... it's possible to get dry delam, but less likely that you'd find wet without associated delamination. So there's likely some correlation between the two if things are already wet..
