Don't know where the dry bilge came from but the vast majority of blisters are caused by water outside the hull...not inside. Couldn't hurt to keep it dry but I've had several boats with wet bilges over the last 30 years and no blister issues associated with them.
I'd walk away from the Morgan if you have more than a handful of blisters to deal with. Too much time and $$ involved to fix properly and there are lots of boats without blisters out there. You can get a discount for the cost of repair...but not the time!
