The staining on the cushions in photo 9—where did the water come from?... i searched for the water ingress and it seems to be coming from the pedestal or the emergency tiller port...
What are the clear reinforced hoses in photos 14-16 for? Clear hoses, the one is water intake for the engine, the other is actually the house water pump.. i'm surprised pearson put the house water in the engine compartment.. the heat wont be kind to any fresh water hose in there... but the engine intake hose definitely needs to be replaced, in fact all the engine hoses need replacing..
What is causing the discolored wood in photo 19? 19-20 appears to be a chemical stain on the wood.. as if a cleaning agent leaked and stained the wood..
Lots of mold in photo 26, 31, 32. the mold really bothers me.. is it wet from throwing wet gear in there or is there a leak above it? i couldn't find a leak, but it doesnt mean its not there.
Water leak by the light in photo 33. water leak in this photo is from the lifeline stand.. i believe all the decking hardware needs to be rebedded.
Why is there so much surface rust on the compression post base in photo 34. this bothers me too... i don't know why water splashing up from the bilge while at sea?
Definite stress cracks leading to the cleat in photo 54. Is the deck soft there? coring is definitely soft in this area... will need to be injected with resin to repair.
The mast groove doesn't look straight near the top quarter in photo 55/56. yeah.. rigging needs tuning..
one of the things i am trying to figure out here is if these issues should keep me from purchasing.. i took mostly photos of the problem areas so if these are all the problems, then it doesn't seem too bad for a 20 year old boat.. so long as decking isn't soft in more places than around the cleat and the lifeline stand..
