    Default Youngblood TX20 deck foam core rebulding questions

    hello, I have a 84 TX20 that the deck has delaminated from it's 1" foam core, I'm in the process of removing the cap. I have never seen anything like this before. the boat is a light lay up and don't mind if it gains some weight. I have thought about a few ribs and pour foam with the cap off and upside down to restore the shape and stiffen her up. thanks, andy v.

    any advise or tips on using divinicell foam? thanks for the input off shore ginger.
    next question, the knees that tie the stringer to transom, do folks typically use lumber or marine ply?
    I noticed the rotte bulheads were not laminated, was this for weight saving?

    Just curious what are you going to be using the core for and what type......... because Diab offers three different product lines for the Marine Industry and, not to mention that Marine Ply is typically used at most Boat Co's today including Skater although there are alternatives such as Coosa or Thermo lite board which is the cheaper of the two but still can be somewhat costly considering you can get a 4x8 sheet 3/4 inch thickness for around 68 dollars at Menards with other marine ply's such as 1/2 & 5/8 being even cheaper and to answer you question concerning Bulkheads some Co's often would only tab the perimeter of the bulkhead in which in my opinion was and is a bad way to go ( build ) by not fully encapsulating it .
