hello Bud,
I am interested in a 1971 W32 flush deck version. The boat has been seriously neglected and needs some major work.
There are 3 deck beams that are rotten, the rudder needs to be rebuilt, the hull where the pintles and gudgeons are attached is deteriorating etc. etc. The boat is heading for the junk heap unless someone as crazy me buys it and restores it.
One other concern is about the ballast . Looking under the cabin sole there appears to be big chunks of rusted metal at the top of what I am assuming is the ballast? Can you shed any light on the cause and whether or not I need to be concerned about this? Also any comments on the deck beams or hull deterioration would be appreciated.

Norm
