I am in the middle of restoring an old Boston Whaler - i have cut a large
bit out of the transom to replace the wood reinforcement. Now i have
discovered that the "foam" betwean the hulls are soaked with water (at least
in the transom area - dont know about the rest). Will the foam "dry out" if
i leave the hull open for a couple of months - or is there anyone here that
have a good advice?

Welcome to the forum ---

Well it might then again it might not depends on how far into the hull it is soaked --- since you have it open -- real slow process -- you need to keep it in a heated area and it just might drain and dry enough without removing and replacing it.
You might want to expand the post through this past year in this topic area (upper right hand) --- lot of discussion on soaked foam --- Tom
