Re: Surveying a Freedom 36/38
The Freedom 38 is a nice boat, the hull is balsa cored as is the deck, the surveyor should tap the entire hull and deck with his hammer and use a moisture meter to check for moisture. I have friends that have a 38 and they have had no problems with their hull, deck or mast. Tillotson Pearson did a good job building the hull and deck and I'm not sure but I think they may have built the mast also. Good luck with your purchase.
