Problems noted on inspection

Hi all

I'm a first time buyer, went to look at a boat yesterday and found the following issues which I would appreciate advice on with regards to resolving the issues, whether these issues have been seen before and if anyone has a rough idea to cost that would be really appreciated!

I've attached images for the below

Wet locker has mould with fungus forming - looks like this has been caused by a faulty seal on a hatch located above the wet locker, the water has dripped down and pooled in the corner causing the top of the locker to cave in slightly due to the weight and the water to be soaked into the wood. The locker and wall section will need to be replaced?

Water present at rear right of boat - unknown cause at this time.

I have a few more so I will see how this goes before I pollute the forum

Thanks in advance

Some obvious signs of neglect and water intrusion; the one in the aft berth looks like a probable deck or stanchion leak.

As to the growth on the bulkhead and the water damage to the veneer, further investigation can determine if it's surface marring or deeper penetrating problem that would require bulkhead repair/replacement. It looks like a heavy-liner-use boat so some of these jobs might be more problematic than otherwise.

Knowing what kind of boat it is might generate some more relevant thoughts from other owners....

Are you having the boat surveyed? A good surveyor can let you know how serious the problems are and give you sense of the cost of repair.

It was noticed there was what looked like a rust mark coming from under the stanchion at the rear

From the pics, the wood doesn't look too bad. A good sanding and varnish will probably restore it nicely. It's kinda hard to see from the pics though.. I would disassemble that area. I went through this on my boat and found a lot of surprises after taking things apart...but all fixable.

I agree with Jackdale...get a survey.

I would consider what else is out there in this type of boat and price range without such obvious problems before spending money on a survey

It took a really long time to grow that thing and it's going to be more than cosmetic

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

As long as the price reflects the condition, I wouldn't be too worried about that damage. It's not structural and is quite easily remedied.

The problem I would, have unless the source of the leak is known, is that with some interior ceiling linings it's often really hard to locate the leak because the water travels along the lining to find the lowest point for exit. It means that every fitting on deck will need to be tested to ensure that you have found the leak. I have fixed leaks on my boat that were unbelievably long distances from the point where they entered the interior.
