Re: Advice on this Catalina 22

Yeah I see it now. I don't know...I suppose you could just glass it up;.but its a bad place to have rot... and the cockpit too, must have leaked and might have rot..... The foam may be a home made floatation system..... I dont remember anything critical in those areas... the keel is pretty damn critical...

Work the keel and see if it flexes....look at it from above and below.... then if you think its solid..... bid cheaply. I got mine, dirty but rock frigging solid...... very cheap.
