Floor timbers and sheer clamps. Now we're getting technical. Hopefully, this would show up in a survey
The sheer clamp is where the deck
Cascade used 3 - 5 layers of mahogany as the sheer clamp. If you get water
under the toe rail or leaking where the screws are on the of the toe rail it rots.
Looks like a factory cabin
Floor timbers are what hold up the floor. They are also mahogany and bedded and glassed to the hull
Sheer clamp is the most likely to rot
I replaced 260 linear ft of sheer clamp in my boat this last summer.
Call Cascade and see if they have any of the keel bolts
