Thanks Matt, I will try to wash out the loose stuff so things drain well. I will assume the foam remaining is sufficent. I have recently begun sailing again out of O' harbour to find blue water so it is good to know it will float just in case. So far I have seen 0 other cats in the local waters but I know it is winter. More boating time on shore working the bugs out of this old boat but that is fun too. This week working on a soft spot on a starboard deck. Hopefully back in the water next week.
On a side note: Looking for a decent 16 or 18 to trailor around the big island if you know someone that might have a boat there they could sell or share. Joined the Hilo yauht club just before they lost all their Hobie gear to theives. What Timing
