need help deciding on whether to go ahead and purchase a boat that is absolutely perfect in all aspects except one. the boat is mid 80' that
is beyond excellent. Only issue is that in previous 2006 survey, moisture meter showed water intrusion down the starboard side from the anchor locker, almost to the cockpit. moisture showed right along outside edge.
Water was leaking in from anchor locker and a small crack near the starboard cleat.All leaks have been sealed. Deck currently is rigid, seems very solid. I know that moisture doesn't go away. My question is, I will be paying a premium for the boat, don't mind that. Will the wet deck readings cause me to have trouble selling this boat 5 years from now. Thats assuming no more water intrusion will occur. I don't want to purchase a boat that I won't be able to unload down the road. It's trouble enought selling the good ones. I have a counter offer that I am going to accept if I can get pass this one sticking point.
thanks in advance.
