Re: Prepping to re-bed stanchions.

down here stuff dries in seconds! jajaja

the point above is correct and is dependant not only on the condition of your core but your WEATHER

My advice is if you have any doubt drill over size by a big margin...dry...epoxy and seal and drill standard size...but like mitiempo says if the core is wet or damp or crumbly you are doing yourslef ni favors by simply sealing and redrilling

like mentioned on other threads there are CHEAP or budget WAYS of fixing delamineted or rotted cores without taking apart your decks

cheers
