here are some photos of the extensive repair delamination on the deck of my h17.
as you can see the intervening material was crushed and wet, so I had to wait for a complete drying with the help of a hair dryer.
I chose not to call the repair eseguitre interposed but with many layers of fiberglass.
finishing was carried out with putty and then the deck has been painted.
the area is now very stiff.

You cannot post pictures directly from your computer. They have to be hosted on line somewhere, like Photobucket or Flickr. Even Facebook will work.

You kind of took the slash-and-burn method of repairing this. Rarely is this level of repair required for deck delamination.

From the photo above, you can see where you were chipping away at the foam to get it off the lower glass skin - the bond was still good, so why remove/replace it?

From the looks of it (and admittedly, it's tough to see the extent of the original damage from photos), this might have been repaired with epoxy injection without ripping the deck off.

surely a repair with resin injection was the most-easy.
in my case, unfortunately, the deck was too soft.
In fact, the lower layer of fiberglass had completely lost resin and it was only one layer of tissue.
Furthermore, the intervening material was completely soaked and crushed.
so I preferred a root system, being the area of the deck where you sit in even feet.
now the boat runs perfectly and I am satisfied with the repair.

That's all that really matters.
