    3218 and 3270

    Hello,

    I'm new to the forum, it has been very helpful and I'm considering 88 3218 or 89 3270.

    I've heard that this model doesn't use wood core? Is this correct, if so, does this eliminate the issue or rotten transom?

    Thank you.

    See the link below for images of various core samples on my 1983 3270.

      Best site I’ve ever seen for 3270s. I’d herd about it but never seen it. Thank you.

      I don’t think my tanks leak yet. What is the best way to check for potential leaks? What can I do to slow the rust?

    Thanks. Excellent source material. I see there there is lots of wood in the boat.

    Would you say that a surveryor would be able to take a moisture reading to determine moisture level in the transom and stringers without issue?

      Looks like almost all plywood cored except the bottom...

          I don't know. I still have the '83.

          An experienced surveyor can effectively use a moisture meter. Expect moisture in the transom.

            Thanks.

            This boat has been in dry storage for 4-5 years. Would the transom dry out?

            Is there any acceptable moisture level?
