    Thank you all in advance for your help.

    I am looking at a steel hull 1958 Roamer 35. What should I look for as I have no experience with steel hulls. I have experience with interior work but the steel hull is my biggest concern.

    Thank you for any help

    Welcome to YF NewRoamer. SEARCH and you will find. There have been several threads about radiogauging, replating and total rebuilds of roamers. Your education awaits.:)

    As you might expect rust and drainage. Look around the bilge carefully to see how clean its been kept. If all the drainholes are open and the bilge pumps have kept the water out.

    What's radiogauging got to do with boats?
