Hi, I just found this post after finding a great price on a 1975 Cal 29. After reading I'm a bit apprehensive about it. At least I know what to look for when I go see it. I can remember what buying things was like before the internet, a crap shoot. I am interested about TOMMAYS' "simple version."

Will you be photo documenting the repair? I know it is not as easy as it looks to take the photos as I never take photos of my repairs and I always intend to. Seems like this is also a lengthy repair and I imagine VERY expensive if you don't do it yourself. Any other comments and suggestion before I go look to help make my decision would be great! I'm wondering if the price is so low because of this problem...

Scary write up with scary photos as he does great work but gets a bit out of control

I have planed out a simple version that leaves the main bulkhead in PLACE

I will cut off the bolt tabs which are in front of the bulkhead and have the new beam fabed with them so it can slide in from the head area[/QUOTE]
