Moisture meters have their place. Just remember that the absolute numbers don't mean much. Look for differences between parts of the hull/deck. An area on the deck with higher numbers than the rest of the deck is likely wet. Constant readings means that the area is either uniformly dry or wet, or the meter is dead . I would always combine a meter with impact testing with a small plastic face hammer.
