I have had a hull measured for water content and it has registered off the scale over a lot of its underwater sections. The yacht is old (28 years) and has minimal bubbles 2 or 3 20mm dia. The hull sounded with a small hammer has only picked up a couple of suspect area.
Some larger blisters were fixed some years ago and cut out and filled.
What is the prognosis for such a hull with respect to strength, osmosis in the future?
Should I dismiss the yacht as far as puchase goes?
