karlhead is on a distinguished road
I worked many years in a repair yard and even when almost new a lot of CL had deck problems. Many of the boats I worked on were not deck caulked correctly and that led to the non-marine grade plywood used as core being prone to rot. Also, the ports in a lot of the boats leaked which was easy enough to fix except a few of them were bedded with 5200 which led to a nightmare. Also the trailing edge of the rudder at the bottom many times delaminated for some reason but was a minor repair. All in all a good boat and I think one of the prettiest, but check the deck and cabin before buying.
