I'm looking at an 89 302 that seems to be in very good condition. However there is one issue noted on the survey
from 2 years ago that concerns me.
indicates "elevated moisture meter readings on the swim platform. One void on the starboard side was found....two very small possible voids were found on the deck
. Moisture readings were low. There was some gelcoat
When speaking with the current
owner, he reports that other sailors and professionals told him it is not structural or anything to really worry about, which is why he did not fix it in the past two years. He said it is just cosmetic.
My wife and I really
like this boat, however it is at the top of our price
range, and he is asking high-retail for the boat (which is fully equipped for cruising: dinghy
, outboard motor
, gadgets, etc, etc.).
All input is appreciated! Any idea of what a repair like this may cost (i.e. rebedding the swim ladder, drying the core
and re-fiberglassing the underside)? Is it necessary?
