Thought the Question was about Blisters

Thought the question was about blisters. Not major delamination. I have not seen blisters of the minor nature evident if the boat has been out of the water for six months unless they where lanced prior. On most of the haul outs I have seen a portion of blisters start reseeding after boat has been out of the water for a day, does depend on how dry the location is. Quarter sized blisters or smaller would be very hard to sound. Are you not in fresh water, from what I have seen fresh water boats experience less osmosis than the salt water boats.

Yes, but posters to this thread have mentioned tapping and delamination. Did you not read this thread?

I have seen blisters "dissappear" in a matter of minutes between the time the boat was hauled to when it was blocked 30 mnutes later. That was in salt water on a rainy PNW day. Best to look for blisters right after it has been pulled from the water, after the bottom is pressure washed. Mark any ones you find with a paint marker. If you have the tools with you and you can lance them right there, do it.
