Hull // signs of repaired damages

Hi,

 

please see this thread for my introduction:

https://www.classicswan.org/forum/post_thread.php?thread=2439

Heres another issue:

The cladding of the gas tank in the aft of the cabin is missing, theres a reinforcement under the cockpit and some repairs on the sides of the companionway.

They somehow do not make sense to me, cannt figure out what the original event causing this damage could have been.

I suppose the caldding was taken away as the new bigger gastank was installed.

But does the reinforcement under the cockpit serve as a replacement for the structural work the cladding was doing?

Maybe this somehow connects to the keel issue?

Any suggestions? 

Thanks in advance, Timo

A few comments about the photos

- The fuel tank was originally laminated, but has been replaced with a steel tank.
