Replying to:Bouyancy
My Rl24 Mk3 has foam in the forward and under cockpit bouyancy areas with inspection ports. The foam (I guess) is expanding foam as it fill the areas completely. 1. What is the advantage of this over leaving the areas sealed and airtight. (I am assuming the inspection ports and foam was added after manufacture.) and I assume that these bouyancy areas were airtight at manufacture. 2. How can I tell if the foam is past it? 3. what should I do if the foam is past it. Water has got into the bouyancy area under the cockpit. I've replaced the inspection port and pumped out the water. I had to dig into the foam to the bottom of this area so that I could pump it out but the remaining foam is intact. The dry season in Darwin will take care of any excess moisture, but I don't know if the foam will still do the job it was intended to do. Any advice appreciated.
