    Default Little help guys

    After eight years of excellent service it is time to pull the Sanger down and do a complete trailer up rebuild. after pulling the carpet to replace the floor, I ran into question # 1. the guy i bought the boat from attempted to remove the foam from under the bow and left a complete mess. i will be cutting it out during the rebuild but my question is how or what do i replace it with? thanks ahead of time.

    What type of foam is up there???? When I bought my Sanger it was full of rotten bags of packing peanuts. it was a mess like you have never seen. it took a hose and a garden hoe to get it all out. If it is A/B foam (expandable) and everything is stripped out of the boat interior wise (since you are going full redo i'm guessing it is) I would get after it with a pressure washer. It still makes a mess, but it makes quick work of it and also keeps you at a distance from the mess.

    Insert an automotive tire vor truck inner tube in forward bow if you have a forward bulkhead and blow it up for flotation.

    You will need to replace it will 2 part polyurethane foam. Its really good stuff. (not can crap from home-depot) You mix it together and it expands. It is water proof and provides flotation. It is really dense and hard when complete and will make it rigid. My brother put it under his floor under his '87 Malibu Skier. And I used it on my Jet ski.

    Here is what I bought...I will probably use it for my current boat.

    A/B foam is good if you dont need the storage, but you need to be carefull when mixing the foam. take into acount the expansion rate because if you mix too much it can ruin your hull. I personally used a truck inner tube blown up in my forward bow as previously mentioned

    I think is expands 11 or 22 times it size and is strong, the wrong mix can break the hull, i know a guy who bluids race boats (problem child) and he said to mix a little at a time, he said they hole saw spots in the new floor and pour it in, that way it has somewhere to go and you creat a stronger hull that way.

    x2. The inner tube is functional, removable, servicable, replaceable. The foam is permanent, messy, deteriorates, and can trap water and weigh down the hull.

    I put three 24" excercise balls past the bulkhead and inflated them. They blow up large enough to hold themselves in place.

    By chance are you referring to the noodles used for swimming pools? I had that same idea when I saw a box of them at the Dollar store LOL. Any Idea how many it would take? I figured 1 floats me and im 170lbs. So 10 would probably do it. or am I off on this one?
