Recore the really wet spots. If it's just damp don't worry about it. Mine was leaking water through it when it rained. I decided it was time I did something about it. The length of this was over 6' and the width was probably 2'. Need to do the foredeck and portside at some point. After I faired it and painted the inside, it looked like a new boat.

Very nice job on the deck repair. I agree that the best solution is to re-core and appologise to anyone that took my previous comment to be a better way to fix. I submitted it only as a less expensive alternative and not a long term solution.

Re: Wet plywood deck core - how to dry?

Hi I have a swanson 27 with the same core problem.

I would like to see if there is anything wrong with pulling all the inside fibreglass skin off, removing the the core and just replacing it with supporting arches/ribs made of wood or fibreglass ? Seems like less work and I would not have this problem again ?

Re: Wet plywood deck core - how to dry?

The best way to understand it is the outer skin, core and inner skin form a really strong I-BEAM in a very thin space

If you don't have one of the three the beam bends pretty easy

Which means, no that wouldn't do it--you need a core. That way you've got an I beam in all directions.
