          Thanks Crodia05.
          I have a mountain of work to do.
          And being over particular doesn’t help the process of getting done sooner.

          And I’m impressed with your work and progress too.

            Lectro...the machine worked like an oversized can opener

              That excavator is hands down some of the best money I've Ever Spent.

              I got a lot done today/or this afternoon.
              Got all rotted ply out transom and tabbing scraped away.
              Got all the foam off gunnels, need to set hull back on trailer and move to dumpster 200 feet away.
              I found the colony of Black Carpenter Ants in the foam trying to stay warm,... And I RUINED their day.. (pics later)
              Also the ants had tunneled in the wet, rotted transom plywood. And the moisture in wood and foam made a perfect place to live(Those days have ended)
              You may remember me saying the ants were main reason I wanted Cap off.. That and wet foam.

              Tomorrow
              1. I plan to weigh hull with this remainder of wet foam.
              2. haul to dumpster, throw away foam, Re-weigh hull.
              3. start some sanding on the inner hull, leveling out imperfections. (OCD)
              4. pressure wash inner hull after sanding.

              Yes, the fun has just began. Plenty more to come.

              Thanks everyone, for your help, support.

                Here are some pics of ants in foam.
                in 3rd pic I uncovered a small hole, 2 ants investigated their last crime.
                shoved small piece foam in hole went to house and got Raid, Hot Shot, and Off Cutter yard Guard.
                I did exploritory surgery and opened up several coveys of slow moving Black Ants.
                I proceeded to turn them white with different flavors of previous mentioned cans....
                Ants are Gone. or maybe resting peacefully.

                  A few pics of transom
                  I discovered today that at bottom of Mitre or step down of transom, there were 2 layers ply, that area was 38-40" wide or across.
                  Then going to outside of hull it was only 1 layer covered in CSM.
                  I got all removed and scrapped down to bare fiberglass.

                    Foam scraped away
                    Now here in middle pic the ply "looks" not too terrible.. this was the side attached to glass of the transom.
                    I think the 1st pic is the inner side of that same piece and you may can see the tunneling from the ants.
                    The last pic is all foam scrapped off.

                    Its still a Royal mess
                    Some cleaner pics soon.

                    If you guys are getting frequent notifications from me.
                    Its because I have to go outside with phone to upload pics,
                    then come back in house and edit or add comments of what I just added. from or on computer.

                      Made pretty progress today.
                      Did 1st. Hull weigh.
                      Got foam out.
                      did some sanding.
                      Swept out. Didn’t pressure wash.
                      Now I feel like a made 1st. mile stone.

                        now I am curious what was the difference in weight with and without foam?
