Buying a Sailboat from the Great Lakes

Main advantage is that a 1993 boat is only five years old. This assumes that the boat was properly cared for during the winter months. Lots of anti-freeze in all the right places for example. My 1979 Hunter topsides still look good after that first coat of wax in the Spring. The engine has relatively low hours and the stainless rigging looks like new. But a good survey should make all of this obvious.
