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.

NOt positive, but IIRC USSpars in Florida may have been the supplier of your mast. A lookup on the internet at usspars.com may be worth it, and if they did supply the mast, get a cost to replace it. OR, talk to a local rigger, they may be able to weld an additional 6" back onto the base. Not "MY" personaly first choice of a fix, ie the welding, but a smaller boat like this may work just fine! This of course is assuming the shrouds and stays are still long enough to handle the extra 6" of mast height.

I called him up to ask more about the mast. It was indeed cut at the bottom. He said there was still more than enough head room. He offered to hoist the boat up to inspect the retractable keel as well.

The stays have been modified already, so they would have to be replaced...
