The GRP-33 wood moisture meter detects water content in wood and fiberglass. This analog meter indicates moisture levels in fiberglass up to 3% and wood up to 30%. Use on fiberglass boats to detect osmosis before gel coat blistering occurs. Check hull dryness before painting, or use to find and trace leaks on boats of all kinds.
Moisture meters are used by surveyors, boatyards, yacht brokers, boat painters, yacht designers, and repair specialists. The GRP 33's non destructive detection system ideally suited for marine surveying, appraisal, and damage inspection. Move the sensing pad across the surface for readings.
Meter comes in a soft sided compartmentalized instrument case. Calibration may be checked quickly with the provided test block and may be reset in 2 minutes.

I have an Electrophysics Marine Moisture Meter but I have cracked the plastic lens over the needle and guage.Can I buy the lens separately?Ian
I would try and contact Electrophysics online if possible to see if theysell a replacement. I sure that your's is not the first one to crack. Let me know what you find out, just in case I might need to replace one inthe future.Steve
Perfect tool for my work
great for checking the moisture content of a fiberglass hull before repairs are completed so you dont trap water in the laminate. No need to drill access holes

lets me sleep nights
We had strange looking spider cracks in our newly painted hull. We do not have a core. We thought out boat was failing when we asked the fiberglass repair person at our marina. We bought the meter and checked our hull against all the other hulls in the marina and found ours was somewhat in the middle of moisture. The meter was complete as it gave us information on how to use, etc. We are now using it to monitor our newly repaired deck, to stay on top of moisture leakage. We sleep much better at night.

Check for leaks and save your core
A moisture meter is a great preventative and diagnostic tool. Leaks can develop around deck fittings at any time, at any location. Most boats today have a core in the deck and often in the hull. Most have balsa core that is vulnerable to water damage. If deck fittings aren't rebedded from time to time they can allow water to find a way to the core. If left uncorrected many $$$ worth of damage can result. Proper use of a moisture meter can detect such leaks early on and save lots of grief.
