A friend has acquired an early C-22. Repairs to the bottom of the companionway and the narrow bridgedeck indicate trouble with cranking the board up over a period of time. A 2x4 bolted to the bridgedeck appears to be an earlier fix, but right now the companionway sill sags toward a 3/4" open crack in the middle. My question is this: can I cut the hose back and clamp the CB lanyard to hold the board up while I repair the damged area with the boat in the water? The lanyard will need to be replaced at the next haulout so damage to the wire is not a concern. I just want to know how much water will come in at the ball.

If i understand the description correctly, you want to repair the companion way
step that also supports the keel winch. the boat is in the water,keel down,there should be slack in the cable. there is no need the damage the tube,just remove the winch,2 bolts. I helped a friend fix the area by putting a 1 x 4 piece of oak
from home depot across the area after repairing with fiberglass and cloth.
the finished area was smoothed and the oak covered the area and looks good.
