Re: What is the age of your boat?

My boat is a 23 year old Catalina 42. The engine has 3500 hours and runs like a new one. The only systems it has that have to wear out on a properly maintained fiberglass boat are the rigging, standing and running, sails, and the canvas.

Almost everything else can be preserved by good maintenance.

On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
