I've been trying to wrap my head around the issue of wet deck core for some time now. I've also inspected many boats over the last 1 year or so (most pre-1985) and the vast majority show strong evidence of wet decks. I realize older boats will almost all be susceptible to wet core at some point, particularly if an owner doesn't proactively take steps to prevent leaks (re-bedding deck hardware, etc. before there is a problem). However, I'm beginning to think that I won't be able to find a boat with dry decks in my budget.

Carry on.

Many of the boats that I've seen, even those well above my budget, have been virtual sponges.
So my question is why haven't manufacturers figured out a way to make decks strong without using core...or why haven't they figured out a way to keep cored decks from getting very wet with age...or perhaps they have and I'm just shopping boats that are too old!
