I am in southern california. Its not too hot and dry yet by CA standards.

@Scary - thats a pretty scary assessment. One would think some of these conditions would be apparent via a thorough survey of the interior and inspection of the ribs and planking from the inside. The surveyor said that he has inspected a lot of boats in our area and worms are just not a problem. I actually had a shipyard owner tell me the same thing. He said he's operated a shipyard hear for 20 years and has never seen any worms except on a boat slipped in mexico. All in all the boat is not in rough condition above the water line but who knows what lies beneath.

As far as "redo the transom". Good point. By redo I meant strip to wood and revarnish. No repairs are expected. The wood is solid and fasteners good on the transom.
