wet deck - repairs to foam cored deck

I have recently purchased a 1980 Kirby 30 (similar to a J/29), hull #4. The deck is "wet" - with water extending 6+ inches in from the edge of the deck. I know this problem can be fixed in balsa cored decks by filling in the balse with fiberglass and epoxy - can the same be done with foam cored decks?

Also, the bulkhead is getting wet (and mouldy) on the floor - can I just cover with epoxy or should I use fiberglass mat and epoxy?

Thanks for the ideas.
