    Tried them, they work fine. I knew Mr. Raabe (originator), unfortunately he has passed away.

    Do a search on moisture meters in Professional Boatbuilder. They had an indepth article, and were happy with these meters as well.

    Always keep in mind that you will never get exact figures. Always measure the topside of the boat, which should be reasonable dry, then measure the underside. Compare these figures and draw conclusions. Try and do a lot of boats (boat yards where a lot of boats are stored on land are great for that) and you will develop a feel for it.
