Re: Steel boats - things to watch for?

most steel hulled boats and ships wind up with dents. Steel only has a certain amount of elasticity before it gets perminently creased.. but just think what that hit would have done to a glass boat?

As for the patches, I had a car that looked like that. Looks like somebody has been doing maintance and after scraping/wirebrushing/sanding the rust away, primered and just painted that area.

Pictures do not say the whole story.. so I would have to poke around the rust a bit to see if it is just surface rust on the welds, or truely rust to worry about
