After completing some final preparations, I installed the new balsa core in the four areas on deck.  In each case, I filled the edge areas beneath the existing deck flanges with strips of balsa and thickened epoxy before wetting out and troweling in a thickened mixture of epoxy to secure the core in place. 

After squeeging full the remaining small gaps and kerfs in the scored core, I applied a layer of plastic and weighted the core down with bags of dense sand.


While waiting for the adhesive to cure, there was little else I could do on the project, but I took inventory of the hardware fasteners so I could compile a list of what I'd need to order for the hardware's reinstallation later.
