From what I've seen, doing it yourself ensures that you get exactly what you want, but it cost twice as much as you thought and takes about three times as long as you thought.


worth the investment. he (Andy Miller) is very helpful and response is fast

DoubleThreat... How did you figure out it was waterlogged? That looks to be a Sport 17.. I have a 97 Shoalwater Sport 17... Hoping I don't have the same problem...

A related question...

If a boat has waterlogged foam but a sound floor and stringers, is there a way to wick the water out of the foam without replacing the floor? I replaced the floor on a boat back in the '70s and vowed never, ever to do that again.

I've cut 4" inspection ports in the floor and found the foam to slowly leach water over a period of weeks. Is there a safe way to speed that up? I'm thinking of using a wet-dry vacuum to pull a vacuum on the space below the floor, but I can see where that could have really bad unintended consequences.

Anyone have a solution that's worked for them?

Sadly the foam has layers that will never get dried out, believe me ive looked at the same alternative and many others said the same thing, ONLY way to dry it is to remove it. But you can try, i did, then i just accepted the fate and cut her up. Not one bit upset,and i would do it again.

Well fellas, after countless hours here she is. I wanna thank all the 2cool folks who helped, not sure it woulda turned out half as good as it did without yall. I couldnt be happier in doing all that work, you guys were right it was hard but rewarding. Not sure what a shop woulda cost but i accomplished this task with about $1500 or so in. Hope to see yall in poc, so feel free to come holler at me if you see us on the water.
