If the boom is lower that definitely won't work!
Thanks guys! This is the kind of info I was looking for... There is no way to verify the retractable keel right now. I could ask him to put it up on stands though.
I did check the cabin latches, they were lined up nicely. I have owned a pop top camper and have seen the effects of a messed up pop top. I'm positive that the 40 year old seal is probably long gone, which would attribute that damge. The one thing that I did notice was there was no sign of a high water mark inside the cabin. The bilge was fairly clean. I'm thinking this boat sat more on land than it did in water.
