    I bought a 1985 14.2 last fall. While cleaning it up I noticed the deck between the centerboard and the transom had some bounce when I stepped there. Not spongy, but it "gave" a little. Is that a concern or normal?

    Thanks!

    Some bounce is normal as the deck is fairly thin with no support between the deck and hull. Later manufactured boats had more support. My 1986 Capri has many gel coat cracks in this area but the basic strength has not been compromised. Sail on!
