Thanks for the addition to the group!! I'm going to be heading out of town Sunday to go look at a 1979 18 2+3. The. Boat hasn't been in the water since 1998. The original engine was bad and is not in the boat. The hull looks good in the photos, but because of the age I'm concerned with rot. I will be taking a friend that owns a moisture meter and knows how to use it. I was wondering what or where I should look for issues?

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

the fuel system will need to be addressed old lines will not handle new gas the tank should be replaced then look for rot soft spots on the entire boat ,deck, stringers hull transom also look for signs poor workmanship done on any repairs done over its liftime like cutting crap or glassing crap in

good luck
