I have a 1995 H16, that i have had for about 1 year. I have removed the hulls to do a "bottom job" and upon inspection i have found 1 soft spot that was covered over previously with mystery paint, or something.
I have sanded away the paint so i can inspect what i have. The area is about 12" long, and is in a straight line along the inner edge of the hull, and is in front of the rear pylon. When i take my fingers and grab the curved lip of the hull and place my thumbs on the soft spot, they do sponge slightly, and you can see the lip move a little. the soft spot is in line with the side of the hull, you can kind of see it in the picture where it has some white filler from previous repair job.
Then on the lip you can see the two fiberglass panels and the foam in between, as there is no coating on the bottom of the hull lip.
my questions are:
is it a problem that it is in a straight line along the edge?
can i still treat this as a normal soft spot and drill and repair?
what do i do about the foam on the bottom of the hull lip? Can i inject it with something?
what material usually covers the exposed lip? this is the only spot where the foam is breaking up, but on the rest of the hull there is not much covering this lip, just old silicone it appears.
thanks for the help.
