Replying to:Renovating an RL 24
I am in the process of buying an original condition RL 24. It'll need a thorough going over and tarting up but seems basically sound I think. The trailer looks OK and the boat has been under cover most of its life but that will need to be check out too. Any tips on potential problem areas that I should check out? Should I drop the centre board (its a swing keel) and epoxy it? The areas set aside for bouyancy, are they foam filled or potential osmosis points? What about the rig - the mast seems pretty corroded, etc, etc. Also any ideas on the gelcoat, its in good condition but badly faded in places.
