The 38 is a great boat. A wet deck condition is just one of a dozen plus big issues a for-sale boat may turn out to have. If this is the only material problem with the boat, not bad, you just need to feel conformable the price you pay reflects the condition. Get a professional fg quote, then negotiate with the owner. The owner now knows he/she has a sales problem that wont go away even if you do, so you should expect an adjustment in the range of the repair estimate. The big element in the cost is how invisible YOU want a repair to be, assuming you repair the deck. There a lot of decks around, still servicing, and wet for a long time.

The mush comes from the being wet over time. Certainly the minimum thing to do is stop any additional ingress of water.
