You can use a tap hammer (i.e. a $5 medical "reflex hammer" or a plastic hammer) or two stiff fingers or something else to just go tapping across the hull and deck, the same way you'd tap drywall to find the studs behind it. If the hull and deck make a uniform sound, or it drops to a "thud" in the suspicious areas, you can get a good idea if it is saturated or delaminating internally. If it is, remember the words of Monty Python and "RUN AWAY".

Especially if you have no experience in those matters. The repairs to a deck can more than double the price of that boat.
