08/22/2018 8:47 AM Pacific Time I am resurrecting a 1984 22C. She has been sitting on the hard for 9 seasons. I pumped about 400 gallons of fairly fresh rainwater out of her. In the Starboard are Lazerette are 2 pieces of 1/2 inch plywood 10” x 20” glassed into hull. The coating has failed and they are rotted. I don’t think it’s a repair -‘it looks like original factory work. I don’t think it’s a lifting point because their isn’t a corresponding set up in port lazerette. Any ideas about what the purpose is?

09/18/2018 3:03 PM Pacific Time I have a 83 and the starboard lazarette has fiberglass gel coat bottom with a hole in it that has a hatch cover to access below it in the bilge. But no plywood is there anywhere. Can you see all the way down into the bilge when you open the lazarette (accessing from the cockpit), if so maybe yours is a later variant. Would love to know.
