    Spongy Laser2 Cockpit Repair Advice Sought

    id be more likely to cut the cockpit sole out, and replace the rotted ply. then glass and resin the floor panel back in. then you can put in real scuppers in case you have water intrusion. if youre talking about delamination of the foam from the frp or glass, i dunno... id still probably go the...
