Paysay is on a distinguished road
Of all the system on a FRP sailboat the hull, baring some disaster, will be the last system to fail. The chainsaw will claim the hull after the engine siezes, the transmission fails, the sails blow out, the deck core rots, the rigging fails, the brightwork gets dull and ... all the other things that can go wrong with an old boat do. Or, some smuck like me will fall in love with the lines of this once beautiful creature know the rest of the story.
