Re: 1975 Ranger 23: bit of water over the keelbolts

Chompy, I know your question is from some time ago but did you ever find the source of the leak? I ask as I am looking at a Ranger 23 and would like to have a little more info on the boat. I purchased an Islander 30 some time ago and the very first night I spent on the boat I woke up to a puddle of water. I cleaned it up and suspected the forward hatch as the cause. The next several mornings the same thing. In cleaning up the forth day I just happened to put my hand on the head to steady myself. Got all wet. Opened the lid and found it brim full of water. It was at water line and no one had installed an air break. A trip to the chandlery resolved that problem.
