Unfortunately, I''m in the same "boat" as daggerman :-( I was considering the purchase of a 1987, 40'' hershine built/taiwanese trawler that has 1000''s of pin head size oozing "holes" on the hull, below the waterline. For those like capnjim02 who have done a peel, I''d like to know how expensive a repair I might be faced with. I know there are a lot of factors that go into this and my surveyor says that the hull has not delaminated but I need data points. Is this a $10,000 repair? $20,000? $50,000? Please advise.
The more I read, the more I am concerned that blisters, especially this many, are much more than a cosmetic issue. They can lead to more serious problems that compromise the integrity of the hull and need to be repaired sooner rather than later. Would you agree?
