Could I borrow a moisture meter?

I've read a number of articles on moisture meters over on the Gear&Maintenance section and at other locations linked from there, and have pretty much decided to pick one up for myself. I will probably get the CT33 that is so popular. I think it will be especially useful to look for moisture gradients in the vicinity of deck fittings, stress cracks, etc. Hopefully I will be able to detect problems and fix them before they become major - once I actually get my boat.

Here's the current problem: It looks like I may have to pay a second visit to a boat on which I have an offer pending. There is some pressure to increase my offer, and I am reluctant to do that for a boat that has been neglected for the last couple of years. There are some small signs of moisture penetration on the boat, so my willingness to increase my offer would depend strongly on what any moisture readings say.

This boat is 5 hours away from me, but I will be in the vicinity when I visit my father on Christmas Day. I am considering going by to have a second look on Dec. 26. I called Electrophysics last Friday, and they cannot get the moisture meter to me in time for this visit.

I live in Swarthmore, PA. Is there anyone out there in SE PA, south Jersey, or Delaware who might have a moisture meter that they could lend me for a few days? I would be willing to drive to you to come get it, and would return it very promptly.

Thanks,

Rick
