  • Water Logged Foam

    I think the foam under the floor is water logged on my 1995 OMC Roughneck 1768AW. I weighed the boat and trailer the other day and it weighs 2880 lbs. I think that is way to much. Is there anyway to dry it out or do I need to completely remove the aluminum deck and replace the foam? What kind of foam board is recommended?

    No way to dry it. Has to be replaced with new foam. Two part pour in foam, 2lb density. Any other foam board is just wrong.
    If ya can't fix it with a hammer,ya got yourself an electrical problem.

      Ditto to 2 lb. foam...

      I used some from US Composites .com and it worked great.

          Ok, so I remove the deck and the old foam. Then I pour the new liquid onto the floor and trim to top of floor stringers, correct? Re-attach floor with pop rivets again. Sounds easy but I know better........Thanks!

              I laid the deck first, then drilled 1.5" holes at strategic locations and poured it in starting at the stern working fwd. it gave the foam a place to exit as i went along. trimmed the foam at the holes, and glassed the plugs back in. then laid a layer of glass over the whole deck.

                Here are a couple pics of my aluminum deck on my Jetboat. You can kinda see the foam in the hole. If you squeeze the foam water squishes out.
