How wet is too wet?

Im branching out in my search for the next boat and have started to investigate Pearson 39-2. Most of the brokers say that in. General they are well built with the exception that many of the deck are prone to wetness due to the manner in which chainplates & other items were bedded.

Can one expect that if a deck is not soft or spongy, but still reads wet to a moisture meter, should it be avoided or accepted? Comments, please.

Re: How wet is too wet?

personally I fear wet decks myself. I’d rather have an old worn out motor than have to deal with a wet deck
