IP32 hull 'oil canning' ? was created by Handsoff
Hi,
I was having a survey done on my 93 IP32. The surveyor said the hull was oiling canning. He said he never saw this before. As proof he sent me the pictures below.

So my questions are:
1. How can I confirm this is true?
2. If true, how would one repair it?

Thanks in advance for any help
Marshall

I can see the pushed in area in your first photo, that is very odd. This area is deep on the hull and inside the boat, this might be able to be found in one of your sofa lockers. I would try to look inside the boat and see if you can see the same dent inside. If it is flexing in this area, which I would find hard to believe, then you could stiffen this area from the inside by adding a fiberglass raised rib type area glassed to the inside of the hull.

On our IP 35, we had the starboard bow flexing inward and then popping back outward while sailing hard on the wind. The factory sent me material to add a fiberglass raised rib into the hull from the inside. This took care of my bow flexing.

All newer IPs have these fiberglassed in reinforcements, our older hulls do not.

As for the peeling paint and the small gap shown in the second photo, that is not a big deal at all. Simply flak off the paint in that area, paint on some Interprotect epoxy and then paint new bottom paint.

As for your dent, look inside and see if you can reinforce this area. it is very odd that you have that. I have never seen this before either since 1991 owning IPs and looking at IPs.

Thanks Hayden,
I would like to know how it happened. I did run aground in sand but was able to back the boat off without difficulty. I just wondering if I might have hit a rock or something when this happened. In any event, I plan to haul the boat out, repair the damage and check on the inside lockers for flexing and damage.

Anybody know a boat yard on the west coast of Florida where I might effect this repair?
