  • Arjay or penetrating epoxy for a deck replacement

    Assuming I could remove all of the core, is arjay a valid solution to a deck replacement? Or is it better to cut the top skin and replace with honeycomb.

    the pourable materials tend to be heavy.

      TPG is correct, I wouldn't use arjay for deck core replacement. I think you would be much better off removing the top skin and recoring it that way.

        Nida or divinycell both good choices. You could even use azek but that's going to be heavy.

          I have to work on my deck as well. I was reinstalling my console and predrilling the holes, only to find water soaked mush come out. I plan on mounting a T-top and can't screw into that. I plan on going back with marine ply. If the original lasted 40 years, it's time tested. But I'd pour Arjay/Nidabond where a screw will go in (t-top legs, console screws). I see you can now buy smaller quantities of Arjay on Amazon now...

            A bit off topic, but I have two ~6" soft spots behind right side of console where a ttop was previously installed. Otherwise deck is solid. Would an acceptable repair be to replace everything 6-8" around the console or soft spots with plywood or arjay, or at that point do you suck it up and do it all?

              How long you keeping boat?

              I had a few soft spots...started cutting, whole deck was wet. Replaced with composite.

              If you're gonna keep it long-term, suck it up and do it all.
