Hi Glenn and others
Thanks for the comments.
So most of that shaved off area is still pretty hard. But the little brown spot that you can see is about an inch or a little less wide and it feels pretty soft. Not soft like you could stick your finger through but soft enough that you might be able to stick a screwdriver through it if you worked at it for a minute or so.
Its too bad I really loved the out fitting and the feel of the boat.
