I am looking at a W32 currently and it is clear that termites are present. They have eaten a small bulkhead or partition of timber at the very front in the bilge approx 10" X 10". I can actually hear them munching away throughout the boat and wonder if this would be a structural problem as the W32 is a glassFibre boat. Is there anything structural in timber that they might be able to eat and if so, what should I look for. I would appreciate any info on this. Should I dismiss this boat completely or is it just a matter of fumigating?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
