Does anybody have an idea what is an acceptable moisture content in stringers / lower transom etc ??? (%) on a 93 sportsboat ?
obviously it should be as low as possible but at what point do the alarm bells start to ring ?
It's a long story but basically ...........the boat was only purchased 2 months ago and at the weekend whilst servicing i discovered the engine bearers are completely rotten, (engine mounting bolts only held in by sealant and glue)
I decided to have an independant survey done to determine if this was the only rot or structual fault before i contacted the marina about a possible contribution towards the repair, alas it seems that my choice of surveyor may not be to good either as the marina already seems to know all about the rot and the possibility of a claim against them, they even made reccomendations as to how it should be repaired, and i havent even seen a copy of the survey that i have paid for yet !
They contacted me before i had chance to tell them there was anyting wrong
Hence my concern... is the survey i paid for worth a
So to be sure.. when checking moisture content myself at what point does it become unacceptable ?
