    Just purchased a 224, i have a few questions. First off everything looks pretty good except 1) keel is very rusty,so is there a way of getting it down with it on the trailer to clean up and repair? 2) The floor behind v berth is sagging a little and the fiberglass has seperated on the edges a 1/4", can I just refiberglass or...? 3) water collects in the center of boat floor where the mast support comes thru, is there a sump there somewhere I'm missing? (carpet gets wet)

    For the floor, you can refiberglass but verify what is under the fiberglass. Sometimes the floors actually have some wood and fiberglass over the wood. If all the wood is rotten then it's best to pull it all out and put in a new floor if you can afford to do that.
