Thanks guys, any idea of how many cubic feet it will take to replace what was there? I plan to replace all the floor and foam.

I also purchased most of my materials for the fiberglass work before I saw Ski Bum's restore. I bought and cannot return matting, resin, hardener and such for polyester resin. If I paint or gelcoat over it will it seal the moisture out? I have always used the polyester stuff, I had no idea it absorbed moisture until reading ski bum's post. Will I be o.k. using this because I don't have the money right now to replace all of it with epoxy based components?

Andy, Do some measuring and see if you can calculate the cu, ft. needed. I know the guys who have used the pour foam have needed lots more due to all the waste. keep in mind, that 2lb dencity foam will displace about 60lbs per cu. ft. or 5lbs per board foot so a 300 board foot kit (1500lbs displacment) may do it.

Since you used the polyester, I would give the bilge a coat of epoxy. You could also add a pigment to it and use it as the finish coat.

Just curious 8122, have you had to replace the stringers or floor in your Tique? Thanks for all the info.

Andy, Yes the stringers have been replaced. Also, the boat was not re foamed in the bilge. I really can't say that is any louder ether. There are a couple threads on foaming or not to re foam. I'll do a search and see if I can find them.

80, you can also take the cut-offs and put them in the next compartment and foam over them, you can also mix in peanuts (not Planter's) if your on a budget, start with the peanuts closest to the hull because of thier shapes it will allow some air and also water to drain

Careful with the type of peanuts!! The new "green" ones are made from corn starch and dissolve in water. Just don't foam!

Pete im with you on the foaming thing, but some prefer it, in the long run it does more damage than good, would i re-foam my own boat? no i wouldnt. if it was an ocean going vessel, yes i would,

Well against my better judgement, I have been 3 miles out in the gulf with this boat. Does that classify it as an ocean going vessel now?

The only reason why I wanted to put the foam back in, other than flotation of coarse, was I remember Skibum saying how much more solid the boat felt after he put the foam in.I have heard this from others as well. I have such a lack of storage in the boat that I wanted to add some small compartment under the floor where the foam used to be but the boat was bad about pounding in choppy water before and I certainly don't want to make that worse.

it depends on the insurance coverage i have too...
Im on lake Erie but really wouldnt take a ski boat on it, i would stay in the rivers or on small lakes and always in site of other boaters, we stuffed some race boats years ago and without the foam i guess they would go to the bottem, i guess it is personal preference.
most times when you remove the foam it is soaked and when you re-foam you are comparing it to a previously soaked boat with all the extra weight it may feel more solid, with new foam the boat is much lighter and maybe a little less stable because of the lack of water weight

I have not seen any change in handling of the BFN since the old foam was removed and the new foma installed. With the exception that it does sit higher in the water.

Hey Guys. Just wanted to let you know that this thread and the ones referenced herein have been a great help. I recently purchased a 1973 Correct Craft Martinique, and am planning on replacing the stringers and floors after this coming season. Thanks!
