travlineasy will become famous soon enough
It has been several months since I did the drill and fill. A couple weeks ago I had a local surveyor bring his hydro-meter to the marina and check the areas that were treated, and the adjacent areas. So far there is no indication of moisture intrusion and I hope the core remains dry. This nasty, winter weather will be the true test of time. If the core is still dry in early April, I'll be sanding the decks, removing most of the hardware and repainting everything above the hull to cabin joint. All of the fixtures will be rebedded and sealed before reattachment, then it's a summer of fun sailing before heading south to the Florida Keys in October.

Good Luck,
