Bilge with cracks on Santana 525 - what did you find out?
I know this post is older, but I would love to know what you found out. We made a full price offer on a Santana 525 (1979) with contract language that says we can check out the mast, bilge and keel. The owner will not go forward with the contract. We still like the boat. So, if you found a way to fix this, maybe we could also.
