paulk is on a distinguished road
Check the main bulkhead where the chainplates are attached as well. On a similar vintage Pearson 36 that I saw being surveyed, the plywood bulkhead core was sandwiched between fiberglass or formica sheets. It was completely rotted to the consistency of wet cardboard. The seller was unaware that his main bulkhead needed to be replaced - it was essentially hidden on both sides by the interior trim. The surveyor found a couple of places to probe that should have been solid and found mush. The shrouds pulling up from their no-longer-solid attachment points could also be causing the deck to rise. On the P36, the price got dropped by about 40% to compensate for the repair costs.
