 I have just had a Sadler 29 surveyed and there is water in the closed cell foam between the outer and inner hull. Can it be rectified or should I walk away?

Out of my league. The best site in the US for the 'do it your selfer' is here:

I dont know what to do for the best with this boat. If I get a good reduction in the price I might go for it and take the chance. Thanks.

I know if you manage to dry it out, there are really effective epoxy barrier coats that can be used. But again, not something I've ever worked with. As I said, you can easily find more authoritative advice in a number of places on the web.
Is this the one for sale from David Cook in Ireland?
(To be clear; He is, as far as I know, a completely reputable broker. And I know nothing about the condition of this particular boat.) Just curious.

No its not from him but in South West uk. They think they can dry it and hopefully all will be well. Cheers.

Very good. I've heard it's a good boat. Best of luck with it.
