    I just picked up a Jarcat CC29 and am fixing a few minor rot issues on it. Just noticed that the mini keels are just bare wood with bottom paint over it. They are in perfect condition, just found that weird to not have glass over it? And then yesterday I noticed that the hulls, below the waterline, seem to be just ply with paint as well. They are epoxied very thick from the inside with zero water damage, 100 % structurally sound. I’m just used to fiberglass boats and didn’t know boats are built like this. Above waterline, everything is wrapped in 6 oz cloth. The hulls are built of okoume ply...
    Thanks for any guidance...
