Re: Steel boats - things to watch for?

Well as Niel Young would say, rust never sleeps. The cockpit shows a lot of rust, and there appears to be a lot of patches on the hull. For me I would only consider a wood or steel boat if relatively newer, and I really had confidence in it's original construction, and maintenance. And I would reach out and find a surveyor very familiar with the construction methods.

You might want to take a look at this one. Look at the shots of the bilge, you could eat off of them! I normally would not consider a steel boat, but this one intrigues me.
