I assume that by "wet decks" you mean that there are soft spots in the deck were water has intruded into a balsa core. This can be a difficult labor intensive repair, but it's important to note that it is usually a cosmetic problem, not related to the structural integrity of the boat. This is true if it's the deck only and you don't have a cored hull with a similar problem and if your chainplates are sound in attachment without corrosion. Good luck, Aythya crew
