Can anyone recomend a polyetane foam to use in my BW?
Is there an on-line shop where I can buy it?

What are you planning to do with it?
Here's some websites I've found:
Michigan Fiberglass Products in St. Clair Shores, MI at:http://www.michiganfiberglass.com/products.htm
Fiberlay at www.fiberlay.com

One additional note.... I've used Michigan Fiberglass products and help in fabricating a forward platform for my 1973 21' Outrage this past summer. I used 3/4" Baltek with glass on both sides, finished and painted. Almost looks factory. They were very helpful and knowledgeable. Ask for Chris.

Another suggestion since you live in Denmark, might be this company http://www.rhhfoamsystems.com/literature/mfb-1/index.html -- if they don't have overseas distribution this would be similar to the type of foam Whaler uses --- so a web search and you might find a European manufacture offer similar products -- Tom

If you are looking for polyethelene foam for your cushions, I might be able to help.
Hope it helps! TENA

Tenna, don't think your shop supplies hull foam! Does it? ENN has a staturated foam core.

Thank you everyone.
I have tried the following to dry out the foam:
2) Applying light air pressure to several small holes drilled in inner shell (app 0,5-0,7 bar) gave another 1,5 litre.
My conclusion is that I will have to cut the "floor" in the innershell open - remove all foam and reinstall/repair innershell "floor" hereafter new foam must be cast/injected.
I do not think it is possible to remove teh water in other ways - based my calculations (weight) there must be at least 75 litres of water in the remaining foam.
