Catalina 27 Oil Canning

We found a Catalina that we like, very dry and with great potential overall.

I did notice some "oil canning" in the deck and some spider cracks that show some stress.

Does anyone have experience on this type of issue? Is it normal on a boat this age, 1975, or is it cause for structural concern? maybe Mast stress on the area? There seems to be a covered hole from a heater vent in the same area.

We welcome the forums advice.
