If you were buying this boat, would this concern you?
I guess the reason you post a pic like this is because it's the worst looking part of your boat and you want to be up front about it? If I were to consider purchasing this boat I would have to pay for a survey anyway because I don't know enough to feel comfortable spending my money but I'm wondering if I should even throw away money on a survey. I'm guessing that it would be relatively inexpensive to replace these but if this is symptomatic of the how the boat has been cared for shouldn't I be worried? Maybe I answered my own question and that's what you pay the surveyor for?
