If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

They're out there

You can find one without the bean rot.. just think about shipping it and look in a greater area. It's cheaper to buy a boat and ship it than fix that problem.

I am about to bore scope mine to look at how bad it is.. I did not learn of this until the other night when i was on the same page..
I have yet to find a write up on the repair which also scares me.

Scary write up with scary photos as he does great work but gets a bit out of control

I have planed out a simple version that leaves the main bulkhead in PLACE

I will cut off the bolt tabs which are in front of the bulkhead and have the new beam fabed with them so it can slide in from the head area

When i was first looking at the boat i wanted to fully understand how the keel was done as i have run into other boats that had keel bolt issues


I found out that the icebox drain hose sits right on the beam ,the head area fiberglass liner has a hole for any water spilled in that area dumps right on the beam AND the mast wires run down and any leaks from them also puts water on it



Thanks to Mariposa

My cal WAS a 1972.. currently I'm in the market for a Cal 34. I'm pretty sure it wasn't redone. From what I've read, some cals had stainless and others didn't. I don't think there is any science to which ones did and which ones didn't.

Well

The fact that there are drawings on the net for Cal STEEL beam replacements in MANY models cal 40 etc and how much stainless cost back than its pretty much a sure thing there steel

All you have to do is look under the port cushions and the CAL 29 steel tabs are in plain sight
