Looking for some suggestions from the sage members of this amazing forum. Or maybe even a “snap out of it, stop over thinking, and get on with it”. I have routed out a future fin box It was taking on water and the fin was obviously moving under the very precise wiggle test.
It was going pretty well, dropping the router 1/16- 3/32 or so each pass, until the last pass which grabbed and pretty much negated any of the careful steps I had taken previously. The foam seems to have very little integrity at this point. Besides the obvious ratty looking appearance the foam is cracked and moves near the outside edges of the upper route. (I KNOW SOME OF WILL SAY THAT BEING DOW IT DIDN"T HAVE ANY INTEGRITY TO BEGIN WITH. BUT IT IS AND I WANT TO FIX THE BOARD!) The Dow is my fin box insert because the board is 1lb eps.
So should I just throw another box in there glass over it and be done with it. Or fill with some other substance(more dow?, epoxy/cabosil?, pore foam?) reroute and glass. What say you o wise Ones?
Thanks for the help.
