Re: Would you buy an early 80's cored hull boat?

A guy hired me to advise him on a boat he had bought on the east coast without a survey. He brought the boat to Seattle and wanted me to tell him how to go about fixing the delaminated deck. He had removed some of the inner skin. What came out was like wet coffee grounds. That's the best way I can describe it. I have no idea what it was when it went in the boat and I sure as hell couldn't figure out what was coming out. Everthing about this boat was a disaster. I told him to salvage the rig and the almost new engine and run like hell. The boat was severly out of trim, floating unusually high and I had serious doubts about how the boat was ballasted.
Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
