Need Help have a Few ?''''s about a ship my father left me

sailing_phil,
Like already mentioned, you need a survey done by a "wooden" boat expert. Wooden boats require way more expertise to survey than glass boats. If a surveyor pulls out an icepick or blade to find rot stop him immediately and find another surveyor. It should be purcussion sounded and then MAYBE probed with a blade for depth. A competent surveyor will find the problems and tell you how to repair them too.
