David, if it has a wet deck core that has not broken down yet...In theory there should be some way to dry it out and reseal it. Offhand I'd hate to think of checkboarding both sides of the deck with 1/4" holes, sealing up the cabin with heaters in it for a month, and then resealing the (presumably now dry) deck afterwards.

But unless someone has a better way, I'd guess something that extensive might be required to save the boat. Slightly less epxensive than peeling the headliner and recoring the entire deck, perhaps.
