         Now it may look pretty rough but all in all it is in solid shape structurally. The coaming needs some reinforcement and there is a small crack in the deck just forward and port of the center board slot that will need repairing, but it is nothing that can't be fixed fairly easily. I have made a access hole just forward of the center board and found the inside dry, solid and all the floatation in this area appears to be in good shape. The boats weight has not yet been determined but just guessing at it after moving it several times it does not feel overweight. You can't tell in this picture but the bottom has already been faired and repainted.
