I've seen these floors in some of the boats, super nice. I was wondering if the wood floor is real, or some type of overlay in the resin.
what thickness do you usually use?Balsa core comes in 1/4" to 2" thickness in 2' X 4' pieces. They have a filberglas scrim on one side to hold the sheets together. The sheets are scored to allow them to bend. I started using Balsa Core in 1968 at Aqua Craft.
For restorations it can be overlayed a sound bottom, then filberglased over. I used it on a Lavey Craft. The glass was loose on the topside. I removed the loose glass, then bonded the Balsa core, wilth more glass over.
I just recieved a 18' Hondo, with the same problem. It will get the same fix.
The more I read, the more I realize how deep the money hole is I was just curious...I've been a fan of balsa floors forever.What are you doing in here Bash, your new boat has gorgeous new floors, leave it the F*@k alone. You got alot of other places to be spending your money, I hope my floors come out half as good as yours. F1~
