Here's another section of the foredeck with core-cell being battened agains the deck above.

I later laid up two layers of 6 oz fiberglass cloth against the core-cell to form the bottom part of the the new foredeck sandwich. I held the cloth in place using SS staples before laying on the resin.

This was a rather dirty and unpleasant job, but isn't too hard as long as you don't let the resin thicken while you are rolling it on. I used a 3 inch roller to do the job. The first layer of cloth was done in hot weather and the first batch of epoxy started to go off when I was only half done. Then it started pulling the fiberglass cloth off the core-cell as I tried to roll it on. From then on I mixed small batches so it would not go off while I worked.
