So I have found some soft spots on the sides of the hulls. Is this a death sentence??? I have been so focused on the decks I haven't checkout the hulls as yet.

No, try to repair the same way as you fixed the deck by injecting resin. Normally very large areas mean death, but go ahead and try to fix. I have read reports of some pwople having great success filling very large areas.

It's not an immediate death sentence, but soft spots are like cancer. You might get lucky and get them all, but most of the time, they re-occur. Resin injection just buys time.

I had good luck fixing my soft spots. I took my time with them. I also pushed and broke everything loose that would come loose so I could fix everything once. Worked so far. I'm almost a year in. I will say I expect it to buy some time, but right now I'm enjoying that time.
