Re: Thermal imaging cameras for checking decks and hulls for moisture

A thermal imaging camera uses infrared radiation to compose an image. Surfaces at different temperature give off different levels of IR. A wet core wouldn't necessarily affect the surface temp of the deck.
A bucket of water will eventually attain the same temperature as the air around it.
