LookingForCruiser is on a distinguished road
Also, the method of repairing a cabin deck from the bottom results in messy dripping epoxy, and poor adhesion/voids, resulting in a weaker deck. Propping up core from beneath is never going to bond as well as letting gravity (and sand bags, weights, etc) do the job from the top. The previous owner of my boat fixed the coach roof using the from-the-inside method, and there are voids that I need to fix now.
