Looks like it has been stored bow down. You can see the water line along the hull. How does it look in the stern? What about under the cockpit?

I've done a bunch of transoms, but nothing in the cabin. Most I've seen that have a major cabin redo pull the deck.

Price of vinyl has increased so high its not worth the savings over epoxy.
