Joe, many thanks for such a comprehensive answer.
Yes, there's no sign of leaks at any through-hulls, around the prop or rudder shafts or the keel bolts. It actually stays very dry when it's not raining here--which has been most of the year.
I just need to spend some quality time exploring. My biggest problem is finding time to examine and work on it, but you've given me some great ideas for when I do.
Could you elaborate on the "core" part of the process you mentioned? Are you referring to replacing rotten balsa or ply core?
