IMG_20210110_114326.jpgwater trapped under foam funny thing i pulled foam in one block and it was dry except dampness on bottom but after around 30 mins that was dry as well , wonder if we need to be sure to create more drainage to evacuate all water.IMG_20210110_114333.jpgrandy and i have been talking about foam and i have to say this foam was sitting in water and is dry so maybe manufactures used different foams and this is dry where as other foams i have experienced were saturatedIMG_20210110_114521.jpgif only they had put a lil more glue between sheetsIMG_20210110_145957.jpgnice tabbing on the boat though IMG_20210110_150011.jpg

Since cold snap i went ahead and replace water pump on the 150 top housing was completely melted maybe 1%waterflow, most likely it went into limp mode so someone had replaced impeller but guess they missed the top housing was melted and blocked even if i wind up trading down id never wanna send this out my yard without knowing it was a safe engine for someone , charging battery tonight and will fire her over again tomorrow and check everything.IMG_20210112_173056.jpgIMG_20210112_173109.jpgIMG_20210112_192634.jpg

cmon ... you know me much better then that :) however it is amazing that it is dry i guess they did use the correct foam compared to other boats.

im actually thinking cutting all this foam and stringers out since half if the stringers were never wetted out properly to begin with and replace with conventional stringers, not using any foam and using the below deck as storage since there is so much room after removing the crappy stringer system they had in this .

just seems like so much wasted space with the way the stringers and cross members were made 2 ft wide bulkheads and what not id rather have floor hatches with some storage plus all that foam has to be heavy, but i also worry that the foam might be what gives the bottom structural integrity?

so got the engine fired back up today has a intermitted stutter at idle , guessing gunk in carbs ugh did compression test had 91 to 93 across all 6 so i am guessing my tester is probably reading low now was really happy to see it was same across board. next up is carb cleaning and rebuilds i guess, i haven't tackled the hull yet waiting on materials so i can grind and replace and warmer weather we have had a cold snap been 50 degress at night brrrrr

got the cap flipped yesterday ugh that was tough alone seemed harder then when i did the trophy, but anyways got it flipped and ground out floor installed i did 1 half inch then csm then another half inch so the floor should be much stronger for us famine proof folk! ran out of time so couldnt wrap the last layer , hoping it gets warm enough today to get that tackled but not looking hopeful lol stupid cold fronts!
