I’d appreciate some insight from the group…

I’m looking at a boat that has some elevated moisture along the starboard side of the deck (some spots up in the 30s). I haven’t had a full survey but went with the broker to do a quick once over. He had a moisture reader and we did a percussion test. Other than the elevated moisture – which appears to have come from a gelcoat crack near the anchor locker that has been repaired – there were two possible delamination spots. The broker didn’t seem too worried about it since it was basically unchanged from the survey that was done 6 years ago.
