Any boat that can be described as "in bad shape" on a brief inspection sounds like a walk away job to me unless you are looking for a lot of work. The water you describe could be coming from a number of sources and, in the circumstances, the smell of mould is not surprising.
Have you read SalingDog's tips on boat inspection trips in the "Boat review and purchase" forum? Essential reading for anyone thinking about a boat purchase, in my opinion.
Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.
I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?
