Core Repairs and Moisture Readings

Hello All-
I have thoroughly enjoyed racing on Tartan 10s and looking to finally pick one up of my own. Most of these that still exist are from the early 80's and thus need some work. I have heard these boats are prone to mosture and core damage. Many of these that I have looked at state various levels of moisture readings which at some point would require core repairs. My question is how costly are core repairs? Is this a $3k, 5k, 10k or 15k+ issue? How does one know when a core repair requires immediate attention?

Thank you!

Speaking from the 5 in this area they all have had core problems that required repiar


My first hand experance on one was that the hull under the motor had to be re-cored requireing the motor be removed and the engine bed rebuilt to pass survey to get insurance


The poeple i know all did it DIY as paying 100+ dollars per hour in this area for skilled labor put the cost to high to make sense to them

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Thank you Tommays. I appreciate your feedback. That is sort of the beauty and the curse of these T10's. You can pick one up for not too much $ (considering it is a 33' boat), but depending upon the amount and cost of the core replacements could really kill you on the ownership costs. Having never had to work through or pay for core replacements I did not even have a clue on what the ball park cost would be.
Best,
B

There are plenty of T10s with the problems repaired on the market

As long as you get it surveyed i dont think it is worse that any other race boat of that age as Jboats also require there fair share of repiar
