Re: Hand rails on Cal 29
The handrails on my 1975 Cal 2-27 are through-bolted, but it's pretty obvious that they are (the nuts are not covered my the headliner). The coachtop and decks of that era Cal boats are plywood cored. So I suppose it's possible that they used wood screws on your boat. If it is fastened with screws, I would through-bolt it when you put it back together anyway.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
