FWIW, I have done two deck re-core projects, the first on a San Juan 21, working from the inside; and the second on a Peterson 34, working from the outside. In both cases, I used Balsa for the replacement core, and I laminated new skins in place rather than trying to re-use the old skins that I had cut off (laminating upside down overhead was kind of tricky, but we got it done!). It's definitely important to do a proper job of sealing any holes penetrating cored decks.
