my turn. The only design defect i can point to on my 71 are the scuppers along side the cockpit. Water pools there on my Grampian. The lower lip of the scupper gromet (drain tube through the rail) is too high on my boat; a half inch above the deck. Water rotted the deck there. How does this look on your 72? Does water pool? I may raise the deck there with layers of woven roving and chop mat plus epoxy. note these are scuppers up above the cockpit along the rail not in it.
