Paul.
I see what you're pointing out.
That's why I like asking questions here. Thank you.

SEMIJim We looked at a Sabre 28 on which the top side stay chain plates on both sides had leaked. The seller (a broker) readily revealed the problem before we even went to look at her. And he revealed it was bad enough and had gone undetected long enough that re-coring was going to be necessary. And boy was he ever right. We did go look at the boat. It was apparent to us that boat, obviously once well-loved and well cared for, had been seriously neglected for quite some time. Our feeling was that the obvious could well be only the tip of the iceberg. We walked away from it.

That's what I thought... Thanks for your response!

Sailormann Doesn't look like a very comprehensive repair job in an area that is subject to a lot of stress...

If you are in love with the boat, get a very detailed survey, maybe even get a yard foreman to look at it, the more opinions the better.

delamination? moisture saturation?

If you are looking at a boat and you find out that she has had some problems in the deck core such as moisture saturation or delamination and it has been fixed
would that be a reason to start looking elsewhere or would it be ok?

What's your opinion?

Take a look at this...YachtWorld.com Boats and Yachts for Sale Is that what I'm thinking?

Thank you!!
