Moisture in deck of 1985 Lippincott 30.

During a survey of an otherwise solid boat, the surveyor found significant moisture in the deck from the chainplates back to the genoa tracks. Deck feels solid and not lifting, bubling, sponginess etc. Does not sound like the dry parts of the deck suggesting some delamination of fibreglass from wood etc.

My question to all of you is how significant is this from a structural and resale point of view?
Is this common in a a boat of this age?
Is it likely to progress to something worse?

Many thanks
JM

Thankyou Andrea
You fill the water tanks through a inspection plate located under each pilot berth. They each hold 15 gallons and are connected to a manifold accessable from the quarter berth. This is also where the pressure pump is located. Advise installing a screen filter prior to the pump as fiberglass tanks can shed debris. I purchased mine new in 1980 and would be glad to answer any questions. I have hull #15 and it is up for sail at Willis Marine in Huntington NY. Mike
