The boat we found, an M25 makes this really easy to check for as everything is inspect able from the inside which will not be the case on the C27.

I wonder though if the boat has been in Arizona the whole time, in freshwater, could this be like one of those 1960s cars that can be found in the desert in unbelievable condition. That would be very nice. Up here everything is always either wet or frozen.
I think blistering happens faster in fresh water than salt. If on the hard what about the effect of the hot hot Arizona desert weather beating down year after year without the moderating influence of cool water.
