1985 Freedom 33 CK 6' draft. During haul out last week I noticed a flex along the keel above the ballast keel, hull a bit below the turn of the bilge. Does anyone have construction drawings for this part of the hull? Thanks, Chandler

Thanks,

Re: boat projects - balsa core repair

CrazyRU Sounds like your making progress! Our survey didn't go very well, big parts of the starboard side read saturated, not delaminated. The yard where she is kept quoted $30,000 to make the hull right. I think I can remove the gel coat ,glass, core, leaving the interior glass to hold the shape of...
