Many open questions?

Basically, a well repaired glass fiber damage is OK and I do not think that it justifies a price reduction.

But, if the bottom of the boat is also a cored of structure and the accident has allowed the water to be absorbed into the filling is the demanding correction, because the filling should be dry or the entire wet area can be changed and it can be remarkably wide because the water is capillary, this must be done carefully before the fiberglass repair.

Be careful and carefully examine the report on repair and moisture measurements, if you make a clouse the offer for a boat, do a good survey of the person who understands the cored structure, perhaps the most reliable way to detect moisture in the cored structure is thermal imaging, no moisture metres.
