I just notice a 27ft C-Dory in FB marketplace. If i didn't already have a boat, that will be tempting. Aldo the price look a bit high for the condition.
Anybody here interested?

Short cabin version. Only 130 Honda, so probably a bit under powered. But could be a "canvas" for someone who wanted to bring up to specs, and maybe extend the house for pleasure use. For commercial--large hold under the cockpit.

The seller describes the "last 6 feet of stern" as saturated. I'm assuming he is referring to the cored deck and transom. Is it possible for the fiberglass itself on the bottom and sides of the hull to be saturated with water?

Yes and no, I have seen "floppy hulls" where the resin has broken down and water intruded. The hull is then no longer form stable. Usually in mostly chopper gun hulls driven hard in the Caribbean or other hot climates.

There can be significant moisture in the laminate--and the underlying hull be still OK.

In this case the boat was left out of doors and the implication is that it was not covered, thus water and ice formed--with repeated freeze thaw cycles.
You would have to see how much the hull would deflect (including transom).

I once bought a floppy hull--cheap interim boat for $500, Islander 23 sailboat, with an almost new 15 hp outboard (I really bought it for the outboard). But I put stringers inside the hull and stiffened it up enough to make a good sailing boat. (epoxy resin and cloth over PVC half pipes made the stringers.

It's not a pile. I wonder if the only thing really wrong with it is the decks are soft? I don't see any cracking or other indications of imminent structural failure. It's so hard to tell though when not in person. And sometimes even when you're in person. It's an expensive project boat for sure....but not totally sure it is one.

Well the 27 is a self draining hull . It has a deck and a hull so is the deck or the hull wet? much different then your typical c dory.

1982 should be plywood no balsawood? Wet plywood will bend or flex more then dry plywood.

Looking at the pictures it looks like a nice well kept boat. I'm sure it's wet somewhere since they noted it - may not be bad at all.

I'd sure invest in a survey before thinking about going to look at it. He points to work needing to be done and the "saturation", hopefully, it is just the floor, but that could be a big job replacing. The scuppers seem to have no directional flaps and there are 4 of them or are they access hatches to the outside? The kicker brack bolts look to be rusted, I would have those replaced or risk losing the kicker while running. The gas tank dog house looks perfect for tripping on when grabbing a rod. The 130 is an older carburated model that was improved in the mid-2000s to provide 20% better fuel economy. Looks like it has a windlass, a nice small bimini and rod holders.

I dissed the last 80's C-Dory I saw on facebook but it had new power so a member ignored my advice and went and looked at it. Turns out it was much better than I had thought so maybe worth ignoring my advice again!

ok so one big question i have from the pictures. That is not the gas tank area as the boat was designed. That is the fish hold. the tanks are built in under the deck up against the cabin. So why do they have these jerry rigged tanks??? are the old tanks not hooked up ? are these just extras for long runs? As for the 135 hp its going to be a slower boat. I would say 13 to 18 mph tops. My 27 with a full cabin ( heavier boat) with a 225 cruises at 25 and tops out just over 30 depending on the water.

yep in picture number 8 from the ad you can see the white covers next to the buoy that hides the fuel fill lines and on the rail you can see two holes where the fuel fills where located. they have been removed. Something is a foot here.

Hell its in the ad, guess I should have read the add first. Good project boat. Cut out the whole rear deck and remove the old fuel tanks, fix the rot in the deck or hull, sell the motor and when you put in new tanks have the hold storage lid rebuilt to fit flush and no more tripping. I would buy it for about 10k as is.

Perhaps the boat was kept, for some period of time, in a place where there was no access to marina gas and portable/removably gas tanks were required.
