Re: Advice on this Catalina 22

I don't have a C22, but I'm not aware of Catalina filling any compartments with foam. However, you can't see what the foam may be hiding.

I wouldn't worry about the sides of the cockpit being re-glassed as long as when you look at it from inside the storage locker you don't see any signs of serious damage. It could simply be issues from flexing, especially if it was on a trailer.

That first hole concerns me. But, if it was me and the boat was reasonably priced and everything else (rigging, sails, etc) was in decent shape, as long as it was above the water line, I'd simply fix it and move on. My first boat was a project 22 and I did some fiberglass repairs on it. I wasn't much concerned about doing my own repairs as long as it wasn't below the waterline.

Not knowing what's behind that foam would be a deal breaker for me.
