Hey guys i just picked up a 242ls. Its an upgrade from my 223. I have been digging around and getting it ready and i found the wood under the batteries on both sides is soft. Is this a normal spot for rot? Can it go much further? Transom? The boat is very clean, has a brand new 2005 bravo and transom assembly on it. But now i am discouraged getting rid of my perfect 223 for this? I bought it for the bravo and stand ups. I am good with wood work and if need be i can replace it i am just worried how far it can go. Thanks for any insight you can give me.
