When i had mine surveyed the guy used one of these. He also ran a moisture meter over it, which is what i was interested in. Neither device showed significant moisture so i can't say the thermal did or didn't work per se. There were a few places like the rudder where the meter jumped a little and the thermal device seemed to concur with a lower temp. My confidence in the vessel was based much more on the meter readings and visual inspection.
