You know your stuff Bill, thanks for the alert on the exposed balsa core. When it comes to balsa core, prevention of damage is certainly far preferable to replacement! End grain balsa is a fantastic core material but balsa wood is considered “perishable” as compared to more durable species of wood. Keep it dry and it can last almost forever but if it stays wet for long it can rot pretty quickly unfortunately.
I am not sure if my Maramu has the same exposed core issue in your alert but I would like to investigate and if so to seal it preemptively before damage occurs. Can you tell me what has to be removed to inspect the area in question?
Best of luck with the fishing and keep having fun you two!
