I have just used this for the first time this is amazing stuff it fills in all the voids without a problem and works in minutes sets up in 1 minute. The extra weight to the boat is nothing good stuff.

Not sure I understand what 'unseeded' is?

I have an old classic (its a bit of a beater, and the floor is a bit soft. Can I drill several holes in the soft part, inject foam and then epoxy them closed?

My plan was to:

Do something about the soft spots
Replace the console
repair ALL holes & cracks
shoot a 2 part paint on the interior and maybe the exterior

Why do floors develop soft spots anyway? I know at the age of 40 (same as my Whaler!) I have a few too...

What I meant was "used" I wasn't able to edit.

I don't remember the name but it was close cell flotation foam

I got the closed cell foam from mini-craft it comes in 2 seperate pints you first need to make a form of were you want to foam to form, then you mix equal parts together for about 2 minutes. I poured into area and watch it go amazing!! You also must cover other parts of the boat as not to have the foam stick all over they suggest using wax paper you can cut excess foam with a hack saw.
I am sure you can inject foam into the boat you must be carful as to have an escape hole for it has a certain amount of pressure behind it when forming. It sure does save a lot of weight and time in the repair instead of using all resin and glass.
