Thanks Kent. So, from your experience, you don't see a need to split the deck from the hull? The preferred method would be thru the hole, correct? If I keep at it, and my arms can reach it, I'll be able to get it all, or most of it, out?Get as much as you can through the port, that will depend on the size of your arm/forearm as to whether you can get in past the elbow! The bulk of the yellow foam you are wanting to get out will be right there in the stern, maybe a 2-3 foot diameter blob. A
As you are doing, leave the white foam block in place.
The hull vent should be high on the forward cockpit wall, about 1/8th inch diameter. Just above the AMF Alcort sticker if you still have it. (Someone else's photo below, not ours, but a good one)
