Re: are these blisters
Hard to believe that gudgeon is anything but bronze. The bronze has likely been faired over with some kind of putty that has absorbed water and is blistering. Highly unlikely it is anything more serious than poor quality fairing compound soaking up some water.
The rust stains running down from the pintle/rudder stock which is probably stainless steel are a bigger concern. What kind of boat ? Did this boat sit for a long time in water without moving ?
The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
