clear floor on hull #238
Hi. New owner to an old boat, FS #238. Everything is solid, no soft spots. Looking forward to sailing next year.
My question is that this boat is finished "clear" on the floor bottom. I can see the balsa blocks and the fiberglass overlay. Is that typical for this vintage boat, or am I seeing the result of a floor that has been replaced at one point in its history? Do you think it is necessary to paint over for UV protection?
