Re: J24 keel damage - run aground

J24 hulls are fully balsa cored and almost all have moisture in them to some degree after only a few years. Be very, very careful of one where the outer hull skin has been breached.

Get a hold of someone who knows how to use a moisture meter !
PS. Not everyone who has a meter knows what he is doing.
Take a look at Moisture Meter Mythology. Some of the photos in this article show J24 core.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
