I wonder how the water got there?

1979 Pearson -Tillotson-Pearson Fales 38 Explorer Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com
The broker said that the boat had just been powerwashed. My wife and I had three problems with that:
1.) it didn't look powerwashed, which was good because
2.) a powerwasher can do a lot of damage to paint or gelcoat if not done carefully, and
3.) if someone powerwashed the outside, how did the water get inside?

Powerwashing does not use a lot of water and the bilges were nearly full. I think the water getting in was rainwater through leaks in the cockpit hatches, and perhaps the companionway hatch and deck fittings.

Re: Fales Explorer 38?

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, alanbrim. My wife and I puirchased a Formosa 41 that was in excellent condition with a lot of well executed upgrades. We sailed it from Mississippi to Massachusetts and are very very plea
sed with it. Thank you for letting me know about your former boat in Hawaii. Hawaii to Massachusetts would have been an exciting sail I'm sure. Stay well, and thank you again, Jason
