Hello, I know I’m late to the party here but I thought I’d post re the transverse beam. I have a 1972 Cal 29 and replaced the transverse beam last winter. Much of my beam could be removed with a shop vac. We made a mold and have created two beams now out of fiberglass. I would be happy to provide photos or converse with anyone who might be interested in more details.
Photos would sure be welcome, sir. Thx
