I am interested in purchasing a sailboat that had a large blister repair job done a couple of years ago. The blisters were ground out to good fiberglass, washed and dried for several months. Fiberglass mat and epoxy were then used to fill the ground out depressions. The whole hull was then faired and an epoxy barrier coat used. I do not know the actual size of the blisters, but from photographs I have seen, the ground out areas were quite large.
A surveyor has suggested hauling the boat and letting it sit for a week or so to remove residual moisture from the hull, then use a moisture meter and sound the hull to check the integrity.
My question is does the repair seem adequate and would this type of survey give me a good indication of the condition of the bottom and future problems I might have?
