Re: Sea Fevers Cal 29 Beam of Death

The Fien is the best tool as it cuts fast neat and the least dust



From the cabin when you look under the settee the center tab by the compression post is the one that will show the issues

In the center of the boats you have three things dripping on the beam

1. They put the ice box drain right there

2. The little drain hole in the head area drips right on the beam

3. The original mast wiring went right through and unsealed hole ,down the compression post so it could also drip on the beam


You should get a good view with a bore scope form the hole in the head area

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

I'm looking to buy a 1975 Cal 2-29. I'm worried about the beam, of course. The tab I can see looks a lot better than those I've seen and I'm hoping this is a good sign. Can you look at the pictures and give me some feedback?

P.S. The bottom of the settee cabinet has a gap of over 1/4" under it. I'm assuming the cabin pan is being pushed down by the mast load and the beam may be to blame

Re: Sea Fevers Cal 29 Beam of Death

The tab that rusts is in the middle as my left and right were perfect

They get wet for a number of reasons

The mast wiring drips from above

The cooler and head pan drain from below
