Got a better look at it yesterday, the cracks all appear to be minor, evenly spaced around the cabintop. No soft spots noticed (did Catalina even use Balsa on these? Is it all plywood core?) All deck hardware has been rebedded, all have backing plates, no stress cracks around any hardware. the winches are kinda rough and will need replacing. Overall though it's a very nice boat, it's just not for me. The interior and cockpit are too cramped, which is why I want a more modern design in that size.
