Deck Voids

I was just wondering how common these are? I just purchased my boat and the surveyor found a couple that both he and the broker agreed were actually more common than I would have thought. I located the surveyor through a referal so I dont really have any reason to doubt him...just looking for some insight.

I assume you are talking about a small area of deck delamination due to a layup issue rather than voids due to core rot/moisture ingress. Both are quite common in used boats but a simple void is a bit easier to cure by drilling and injecting epoxy. Not a big deal unless you have widepread areas of rot/delamination...but you should get an adjustment on the selling price to allow for proper repairs.

Thanks Cam..yes I got an adjustment based on the survey report and his comments. It is an 2006 and he mentioned that it happens in the production phase..which Im assuming is the layup issue. He had mentioned the repair happens exactly how you stated...I just dont understand how prevelant it is and why they would catch them all in production (during qulaity control) if a surveyor can find them by banging on the hull with a hammer.

Sab..if ya don't look...ya can't catch them...and it is cheaper to just fix the ones customers find! This is one reason I recommend a survey even before taking possession of a new boat.
