Repairing core moisture
I found a Sailnet article describing the procedure of "routing out" between the glass, injecting new epoxy, re-drilling, etc, for small areas, but the "moisture" I''m concerned about is noted as, "Deck -core, wet/moist around shroud chainplates, remove/rebed chain plates."
More important, "Deckhouse roof section port of mast step, wet core in 24"X20" area, rebed deckhouse sheave fittings from mast step halyards."
Readings were done by a reputable surveyor, (not my survey, was given to me) with a moisture meter. The report further states no delamination.
Should I be looking for another boat? The price isn''t bad. On the lower/middle price range for boats of this type.
Thanks again James. I''m at the beginning of a long educational process!
