Help with inspecting a Cal 28-2

Figured I'd open this to the Cal group first.

I looked at a mid '80s Cal 28 and found a few areas of concern that I'm looking for opinions/comments on. Can you help identify how serious these are or more details about possible causes?

The first is what appears to be water damage on the toe rail, sb aft. (1st and 2nd picture)

The second is the area below the cockpit (picture 3). It is accessible from the ps quarterberth, and in the picture, the right hand vertical 'wall' is the transom. While the rest of the boat was dry, this area was damp around the through hull which goes vertically down. I'm wondering if it's a leaking through hull or something else. I don't know what that hose is (engine water intake?). I believe the two white hoses are cockpit drains, and I don't know about the remaining two.

The third concern is what appears to be a result of a flex or impact on the deck. Picture 4 is taken from the ps quarterbirth, lying on my back, looking up at where the cockpit floor meets the hull. Left is Aft in the picture. This piece of wood is flexed down between bolts 1-2 (Left to Right) and there is a crack leading aft from bolt 1. I'm not sure what this piece is for as it seems too far away from the hull to be used for stanchions/winches/toerail.

Here's the link to the pictures

If you look at the top of the toe rail, you see three bungs[plugs] covering three fasteners where there is only need for one. This is because the rail is split and the original fastener no longer held the rail down. Someone added more fasteners instead of fixing the split . The leaking through hull appears to be through the carpet on the inside of the hull. If the nut on the inside of the hull is not mounted up against the hull or preferably a backing plate, there will not be a rigid , leak proof seal. Is pic # 4 of the hull to deck joint? Does the wood strip continue all the way forward at that distance from the hull? If so, an impact at the sheerline could have pulled the bolts up through the backing strip. They also look as though water has leaked in damaging the wood. None of it looks to difficult to fix. I would be most concerned with the thruhull and the lack of a valve to close it off. It is probably not the raw water intake for the engine due to the close proximity to the waterline.

None of this looks too serious to me, just cosmetic stuff. I'd say the thruhull in question looks like a cockpit drain and the reason that it does not have a seacock is that it exits above the waterline. Figuring out what hoses are for what shouldn't be that difficult...

Thanks for the reply guys,

xsboats, the piece of wood is about 5-6" in from the hull and it does extend forward at that distance. I couldn't see for how far due it being covered up by the galley/salon woodwork.
