I assume that by "wet decks" you mean that there are soft spots in the deck were water has intruded into a balsa core. This can be a difficult labor intensive repair, but it's important to note that it is usually a cosmetic problem, not related to the structural integrity of the boat. This is true if it's the deck only and you don't have a cored hull with a similar problem and if your chainplates are sound in attachment without corrosion. Good luck, Aythya crew

I'm looking for a boat to use as a liveaboard in the NE. I found one, but it has a wet deck. How important is this? I know it can be a mess, but I figure that the first boat I get into is going to be the wrong one anyway, and this one is cheap...
So I'm not necessarily looking for longevity, but a liveaboard to learn on for a few years. Thoughts?
