Can't seem to find Hollofill for some reason on Google.

SD- Thank you for the suggestion, it looks like the Airex is more than twice the price of the end grain balsa and I don't see a real need for anything more than that on my little South Coast 22 sailboat.

It looks like both products don't soak up much resin so that is a good thing. It looks pretty straight forward though, puchase enough square footage, prep my surface, wet out the surface, lay my core, then fill the kerfs?

Since there is an arc like a rainbow I am thinking my kerfs need to be up to let the material bend. I read about the installation of the product and I interpretted that you don't neccisarly have to fill the kerfs so I could just wet out the outer surface and apply my layers of fiberglass to form my deck surface?

All done with the repair with only painting left?

Small is beautiful, simple, cheap, and easy......
