Help with a purchase

Post by wrsjr101 » Sun Jul 07, 2019 11:45 am

I am about to buy a 1995 355 Express. everything is in excellent condition and the survey is great...except for some moisture. I do not want to panic, i want to be educated. the moisture is located port, behind the porthole. It has been sealed and "taken care of" as much as the current owner states and the broker as well. I am concerned with safety and how to really know what is going on. No delamination, nothing you can see.The boat sits fine and I am going to go for another sea trial to take a closer look and feel with this knowledge in place. Any help or insight would be helpful

Don't know much about Carver construction , I assume a corded hull ? What are the surveyor's thoughts on it ? Where exactly is this how large of a area ? How was it fixed ?

Ty for the reply. they all say no real issue with the seaworthiness. I have not gotten a straight answer on size of the area.The sealed up the port holes after removing...'thinking" that was the source.
