Default For the Record

Since the last time that I expressed my opinion about a boat (and it's owner ) brought on a ridiculous chitstorm that lasted a few days, I'm a little reluctant.

I'll stick to the facts.

I had a deal to buy this boat and after getting a survey, backed out of the deal (and got my deposit back). My survey showed wet readings on the moisture meter for part of the transom, bulkheads and stringers to 18 feet from the transom. there was also some delamination on the bottom (according to the survey). The owner and his wife are nice people and the boat is very nice. New interior, dash panels and gauges, as well as a Garmin GPS unit and a gps Gaffrig speedo. The cabin is nice and there is a stereo. There was trouble with one of the engines. (I had planned on having two engines built by TomFTM). The drives have also been rebuilt/beefed up by a respected Merc shop in Long Island.

I spoke with the owner (Dooley) yesterday and he has replaced the 454 mag that had a problem and had the delamination fixed with a epoxy injection method and he said that the fiberglass guy says that the transom and stringers are fine. The boat has no trailer.

We all know that sometimes surveyors can be wrong with their readings and mine very well might have been. For the money that he is asking (35K), It will probably sell quickly. But I would get a survey.

so if the transom is all damp like that and the boat is exposed to freezing temps , wont that contribute to more delamination?

hard to just come out and say yes but that would be one of the largest problems.. plus if it's bad enough then you get into soft spots on the motor mounts, gims and/or drive and boxes etc etc.. then you really start to have problems.. have to get iinto the transom with a grinder and take it down to solid wood or glass and then kick it back out with some woven.. and so on and so on..

I have had to do transoms, and stringers in a boat before. I had the engines out, and the transom stripped of all parts. Cost 2,500.00
That seems like a great price.
