I am pretty close to closing on a cooper
35 which has retrofitted some "pull down" fixtures that are afixed to the interior mast
and secured to the deck
above. This, I was told was to counter the oil
canning due to non- offset bulkheads situation.
What should I be looking for during the test sail - Daylight around the mast
from in the cabin
there is what I would call a goodly amount of crazing on the decks nearby but not on the cabin
roof - and the deck
and cabin are supposedly of foam core
. Things feel solid, too, on the deck except where one boards the vessel. The crazing was suggested as due to too heavy of a gel coat and with my limited experience of seeing finer spidering in glass on othe boats and this wider spaced though heavy crazing, I might tend to agree. Thoughts?
