Re: Hi, we too got a new/used Cal 21

Hey Folks, in a bit of a quandary here. I am about to put boat up on stanchions so can drop keel. INterior of vessel is a bit of a mess, but I, like others, am more into getting sailing than looking for a place to camp out. I see in pics posted by Bonito that he has replaced a lot of the plywood around the trunk. Some of my ply is rotted out - the half inch tables below the chainplates and some of the transverse "supports" at the front of the trunk and on the port side just aft of the keel bolt. Also some of the support for the port bunk is a bit wasted. A close inspection does not show me that any of this is necessary to support the trunk, but the current condition could be misleading. If there is any info on the need for any of this to be addressed from a safety point of view please holler. I just want to go sailing and there is lots of other work that needs doing! Thanks in advance. rippy
