Just looking for some opinions, I am always reading about digging wet, soggy foam out, making whatever repairs and then putting the same foam back into the boat. This reminds me of a definition of Insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. What keeps the new foam from becoming a soggy mess all over again? Even old Whalers get soggy and they are put together pretty good initially, which just shows that water can and will get in somehow, someday. What else can we use, recycled water bottles.....?
