New Member with lots of questions - Help!
I'm a new member and owner of an Irwin Mk II 38 center cockpit. Having been neglected, on the hard, for 16 years, there is a need to recore the aft deck. I am intending to do this from below, since the headlining also needs replacing.
There are several approaches that I have seen on the web, but the one that appeals most is the idea of 'Drill and Fill' using expanding foam as the fill.
Would be interested in hearing peoples' experiences, good and bad, of this solution, since it would seem to involve the least destruction of both the fibreglass skins. The cleaning out of the old core is not a problem. I am more concerned about the strength and structural integrity of the deck after the repair is completed. Looking forward to hearing of results.
