Hello Len! The suggestion from your yard tells me that they do know nothing about this problem and that you for sure should chose another yard!
As I never give any commercial advises on this forum, Please e-mail me and tell me where you are situated and when and where the hull was built.
Regards Bengt Blomberg

: I have purchased a 42-foot Prowler by Cooper and when it was pulled for survey, the surveyor found the following: "Surfaces below the water line of this vessel visually, by testing the hull with a GRP-33 Moisture Meter, and by sounding with small steel hammer. Using these methnods, we observed numerous (est. 250) blisters ranging in sizes from 1 to 3 centimeters, sporadically located through out the underwater surfaces of the hull itself. His recommendations was to have a reputable marine repair facility further inspect and repair as necessary the vessels underwater surfaces of the hull for osmosis blisters.
: The facility I choose suggested that they simply "patch" and repaint the bottom at a cost of @$4500. The surveyor suggested that they completely redo the bottom at a cost that the facility estimated would be @$12,000.
: Being new to boating, does anyone have any recommendations of what I really need to do?
