Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon. I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues. I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor. My question is regarding the need to replace the foam. Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam. Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?
I joined this forum a couple months ago hoping to learn more about the RI 257.I intended to purchase one this winter but am now leaning toward Malibu just because there's a community that helps each other out there. I have posted a couple times with none of the original thread starters replying. I also joined the Facebook group. Does anyone know why these 2 forums for the most part are totally dead? Barely any one answers any questions on either platform. Where does one go to get first hand information about these new boats?
Thank in advance
