O'Day 28 Construction Question

Looking at a mid-80s O28 last week, the seller mentioned the boat having been neglected by a PO for the "past several years". But according to the seller, the O'Day hull construction saved the boat for refitting. Something about the boat getting wet below but the "hull liner" saving the day. Can anyone explain how O'Days are built and how a "hull liner" (whatever that is) could contain damage caused by a boat getting wet inside?

Re: O'Day 28 Construction Question

the hull liner is the bunks, sole (floor) and parts of the sides. think of a bathtub in a bathtub. He may be telling you she sunk on the hard, meaning she flooded with rain water and was left standing that way. The "liner" doesn't really keep water from getting between the hull and liner. the good thing is most if not all the odays were solid FG and not cored hulls. check the woodwork .. you should see a water line if it was ever flooded. it's hard to hide it on the bulkheads unless they are refinished.
