Green Fiberglass/Resin in the Bilge...?

Can anyone tell me if this Green fiberglass/resin is something Pearson did from the factory or would an owner have done this? it's raising an eyebrow for me on a 1990 33' that i am considering for purchase..
Its either someone really anal that wants their bilge as perfect as possbile, or its a repair.. and if its a repair.. what the heck is it repairing to this extent??

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

that makes me very uneasy since this is where the keel bolts are located.. what typically fails in this area to necessitate this type of repair? i've never seen this before...

Well it has been used as an attempt to block water ingress before..But Im not saying that's the case here.

The raw glass inside the hull of our 84 Pearson has a green tint. From the pictures, it looks like yours is greener, but it is hard to tell. Have you checked other areas of the hull to see if the coloration is consistent?

My 87 Pearson 31-2 also had raw glass in the bilge with a green tint. I have look as several other Pearsons and they had the same thing. I have had boat yard folks tell me it is a repair, but on close examination it is the tabbing being the hull and the floor members. The tabbing on my boat was begining to separate from the hull, so last year I had the boat yard replace the floor. Now it has a shinny white epoxy bilge. Hope I keep it looking that good.

interesting... its odd how it does look like a repair, but maybe it is the way pearson did their tabbing. Your bilge looks nice and clean now..
