So I've had the boat for a year now and again the moisture meter performed its magic. After hauling in December I spent an hour mapping the deck and hull using the meter. All seemed okay except for a 10x10 inch patch on the hull that pegged the meter. I decided to see if it would dry out to confirm that it was moisture. Sure enough this spring the spot reads dry. Crawling into the anchor locker it only took about five minutes to identify the cause of the leak. There is absolutely no visual indication of a leak anywhere, just water infusing the hull. So with the knowledge provided by the meter I found a small maintenance item now instead of becoming an expensive repair later.
Once again proving that moisture meter operation is useful and easy....even for dummies.

I thought so...but I've added a link to the version on Sailnet... I've got that same basic post on about six place on the internet at the moment...but some have the link to your article, some don't.

I borrowed a Moisture Meter from a fellow boat owner in teh area. It was one of the CT series but was digital rather than analog. A year and a half ago I had entire deck and hull mapped out for me by a surveyor who used his own meter, hammer, etc... so I had an idea where the dryer and wetter spots were.
With all this I then attempted to use the meter and soon found that it is an awful lot more difficult than one would think. I basically sucked at using the meter and immediately decided I would engage the surveyor again in the Spring. Since I was looking only at moisture levels in deck and hull I did not have to pay for a survey - just for an hour of his time. Well worth it!
