Is this a wood bulkhead? If so, then painting could have been done to cover overall poor condition of the wood. Still, repairable. Cut out, replace, etc. A job yes but doable yes.
What I do not like is what you say about the moisture readings. Of course this may be just the gelcoat
but how do you want to know this without removing the gelcoat
I would be cautious, just like a number of posters above me.
BTW Are you still in the UK? If so, why not buy a boat
locally? UK, Med, Canary Islands ...
There is a very nice Moody 376 for grabs here. Or are you fixed on a cat?
It is wooden bulkhead - plywood
I believe. I think the paint
was more to do with an all over makeover. Didn't consider the idea of it masking things, but you never know.
Starting to give up on the idea of affording a cat - likely end up in a mono to get out there sooner. Have 3 kids
to squeeze in, so i'd guess the Moody would be a bit petite.
Do like Moodys though - brings back memories of my Dad fan-girling over them at the boat
shows in Blighty back in the 90s
