Default Moisture Meters?

I am searching for a boat right now, and would like to use a moisture meter, it will be used once, so I do not want to spend a fortune if an analog works as well as a digital.

My main question is, how do I use the 2 prongs on fiberglass? or is there another type of prong that someone can refer me to, that people use for boats?

Since it will be a big purchase for me, I just want to make certain of whatever I buy before I buy it. Thanks for responses in advance.

Just because the meter doesn't show moisture, doesn't mean it isn't rotten.

And just because it does, doesn't mean that it is...

Hire a surveyor so that in case he is wrong, you can file on his E&O insurance for the missed damages.
