    Does anyone in here have experience with thermal imaging?
    - I'm trying to buy a 1985 Conyplex Contest 38s. As i did some research, I got aware that the hull is balsa laminated. No surveyors here Denmark know about thermal imaging. Some of them says, the only way to find out is to take core samples, and the owner won't allow that. So i borrowed one from a friend, and took some quick images.

    Should i walk away from the boat, judging from these images ?
