always survey

Assuming you will not buy without a survey. Surveyor will sound out the deck with his little brass hammer and tell you if the deck is sound. is the mast deck stepped? If so check the compression post. Is the mast keel stepped? If so then check the mast step to see if it is allowing the mast to move and move the deck with it.
