Our 2004 C-D 25 (Sans Souci) sustained outer hull bottom collapse. Survey indicated balsa saturation 80% of bottom and soft areas in cabin floor and dock-pit deck. Restoration required replacement of all core material below waterline as well as cabin floor and cock-pit deck with solid, high density,closed-cell foam. Yes, it can be done, and was perfectly accomplished by Barker's Island Marina repair facility, Superior, Wisconsin. Not cheap, but better than new.
