There was so much compromised wood and screws going straight through the deck.
Nothing was properly sealed.

Started cutting out the deck yesterday. Had some water resting in the bottom of the hull and all the wood deck, bulkheads and stringers inside all showing signs of water damage. The foam that was poured in from holes cut into the deck was also very badly distributed.

Thanks QuQ!
Yeah so started removing all the foam and junk that was below deck. Some really slow, back breaking work, and lots of grinding but needs to be done.
Does anyone know should I be worried about removing the structural integrity of the hull and damaging it in the process from it flexing too much??
Is it better to remove the bulkhead replace it with a new one and then move onto the next?
Because otherwise it will be a bare hull with not much support on the trailer.
It seems this would slow me down a bit but if it's for the best no worries.

yip that's where the shyte hits the fan. not the best things to get done.

take up bfc on his offer, stringers and bulk heads out of grp will be much better!!!!

rather get sondor foam, very expensive but you still have bungs. so if there is another leak it will just drain out.

no use having a suspected sealed hull which is taking on water.

all the best.
looks good by the way

Hi Willem
Yes I've spoke to BFC on the phone such a Lekker chap, it sounds like their factory is a bit busy at the moment so it's a question of waiting for things to calm down, or just moving on with the project.
I'm quite keen on moving quickly to make the first kreef weekend in April!
What will be the difference with sondor foam compared to the rest.
Would it let water flow through or what??
Thanks for the advice BTW.

So this is the progress so far, almost at the end the destruction phase, soon the fun stuff begins.
There's been some blood sweat and tears it's tough work.

sondor foam comes in "blocks", and they do not take up water.
you still have bungs so should it happen that a crack causes water to get in the hull, you would immediately see it as the water drains out the bung holes.

with a 2 part foam, the foam is poured into the hull. the hull is then sealed "obviously", but as there are no bungs, you will never be able to see if there is a leak......

thus with the boats weight on the water, water does enter and eventually soaks into the foam, because.... the water will enter and could lie between the foam and the hull. but the banging of the hull eventually causes the foam cells to break, this will allow water in, and from there it is basically down hill, all the way.

2x part foams are ok but only in a completely sealed container/ hull.
I have seen arse holes, drilling holes into a hull and then try and seal the hole with sika flex, if it works, I don't know, but they basically just screwed up a sealed container...lol

most boat hull are not properly sealed, deck side, so plenty of water will get in there.

Yip, BFC is regtig n nice chap.....en hy kan so baie en aanhoudend praat.

you will have to take some leave to get it all done for the first week in April

Good luck!!!

Hi Willem,
So I looked into the sondor foam setup,ideally would love to be going that route, but it will turn out too expensive for our budget.

So my plan is to layout out my bulkhead stringer system exactly like BFC's in the picture he sent.

4 transverse bulkheads and 2 longitudinal stringers but using marine ply properly sealed and laminated in.

This way i divide the below deck volume into segments/fillets leaving the middle segment empty for water to drain out the bung but the other segments are completely sealed off.

The other option is to fill the middle segments with bottles and the sides with foam.

Haven't posted anything in a while it's been slow progress, the grinding has been a real beeach. Burnt out grinder breaking grinder pads...

Getting everything clean and smooth so we can lay a new base layer of chopped strand throughout the inside of the hull.

This will help with any laminating later on so it will bond nicely to a slightly tacky new layer.
