A Warm Welcome and Starting off with a Question!

Hello to everybody here in this forum!



Iam a newcommer in this Forum and please be patience with me as iam not a native speaker. Iam not new to sailing, but pretty green in ocean sailing..

Sailing so far is lot of fun for me but iam getting more and more curious about a plan of travelling around and live aboard a yacht for a longer term. So, that brings me to the point- iam looking out for a boat and getting slightly closer to fulfill my desire!

Can anyone in the forum help me further on an issue regarding an particular 41ft sloop 1981 which is for sale right now, but shows some signs of water intrusion in the salon above the pantry?

My first impression was that there is water intrusion in the deck structure- but the lady never had teak decks. As well as the deck look ok.

The brokers comment is, that everything is dry- no moister and believed it came from open portlights.. just a peeling of the paint.. he say´s nothing serious, just cosmetic..



My plan is to send a surveyor to do a walk through survey, but would appreciate a lot your opinions first.

Thank you ALL very much in advance for your help!
cheers
Tom

Re: A warm welcome and starting off with a question!

Only a close examination can possibly determine if it is only cosmetic, or a symptom of something more serious. I don't think that anyone just looking at a picture on the internet is going to be able to help you.

Good luck.

Gord May tnx for your warm welcome!

DenverdOn, tnx for your reply on that particular issue- your right by what your saying- and i expected just an idea of what could possibly happend to that part of that vessel. I was thinking that maybe there is somebody out there who might have had the same Problem with his early 80´ Taiwan build vessel... and possibly could tell me what the problem caused in his case and how intense the refit was..

Anyway, and that i know for sure, i will have to contract a surveyor to check out on that "Peeling of paint" thing.

have a nice day!
Tom
