Dave,

Thanks for all the great advice while I was checking this boat out! Just had the survey this morning. Moisture meter and thermal imaging all showed good readings, even around chainplates, anchor locker, etc. The only place the deck showed a little wet was on the sole in the cockpit. After really going through it with the surveryor I was impressed at the level of maintenace it has recieved.

One thing the surveyor cautioned me about was the rod rigging. Said it should have a magnaflux inspection - and it's not cheap. Do you have rod rigging? Any experience that can speak to it's life expectancy? I haven't been told by the broker that it's ever been replaced, and he's made a point of showing me everything other little thing that has.

Thanks!

Erik
