Yes, but ease of working with it may more than make up for the price difference.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Not sure I follow. How much different is it going to be working with a plastic/foam core as opposed to plywood?

Balsa and Plywood don't bend—foam does, at least Airex does, Divinylcell less so. Most cabin tops aren't flat, so some curves are needed. IIRC, ContourKore balsa is pre-cut with kerfs in it so it can be somewhat more flexible than plain balsa would be.

Deck core

Trevor,
Like I told the guy in the other thread. I have over 15 year professional experience with these type of repairs. your boat is not very far from me. Give me a call at my shop:
Motovation Cycles & Accessories 301-472-1811. (Let them know when you call it is about my boat, They screen my calls from all of the telemarketers).I will be glad to have a look at it with you and get a game plan togther. I am sure we can swap some labor back and forth between our boats!

Ditto on the labor Trevor.
I got a bottom to do and a locker to re-floor and re-glass.
It's always easier to measure twice when there are two people.

That goes three times Trevor. Dan and ChucklesR, I'd be glad to help out with any of your boat chores. This will help me learn to do the work on my own boat.

Send me a PM when you need some help!

Too bad you guys don't live in BC. Try re-fitting a Tayana 42 with two artifical hips, on your own.

Why, why, why?

Thanks for all the offers of help, I'm reading over the requirements for the fillers and resins now. Trying to decide what's the best to use. I'll probably use the West systems, but not exactly sure of everything I'll need. I've been reading their website.

Thanks for the offer Dan, I'm actually going down to the boat this weekend. Helping a friend move on friday, and sailing on saturday. Do you work on saturday? BTW I'm more than happy to help out others on their boats, and have connections to a machine shop if you need some strange parts. I'm a certified automotive machinist.

material

The contour-core balsa works great for curved surfaces. Just remember to fill the kerfs before applying. FWIW you can also bend ply over curves that aren't too radical--just lay up 2-3 of thinner sheets to get the requisite thickness instead of one thick sheet. You could also kerf yourself or apply in smaller squares. Another couple of thoughts for you... if you are using the West epoxy, the gudgeon bros (West system) people are great resources if you need some advice on the project--just give them a call. Also if you do end up doing it overhead you could do it sections. Just be sure to prep properly and overlap layers of glass. You might also think about using stainless/monel staples to fasten the inside cloth layers to the core and not have to worry about grinding off or removal.
