Re: Cored deck soft spot repair

I have just started addressing the soft spot in the back of my cockpit today. Probably water ingress from the rudder post.

I was going to do it from the top but decided to go from the bottom after I realized that my fiberglass is much thicker on the top than on the bottom. On my boat the bottom is a mere skin while the top is much thicker. I feel that cutting through that layer is much safer.

Something to consider
