    I didn't find any rot when I looked at it. I was looking more when I went to go work on it. That's the exact reason I settled on this boat was cause it was in great shape! But I'll look into having someone liking at it.

    Mercy knock off. They are about 1/2 price and parts are interchangeable.

    So I got a surveyor coming to look at her sept 1st. And I guess I'll go from there. I'm not too concerned but since it was brought up I guess I should have it done for peace of mind.
    Thank you atis!!
