Uhhh... This may be obvious, but the life expectancy of bedding sealants is about 20 years, perhaps 25 on unstressed parts. Even if soft decks are not a problem with this boat, you should expect re bedding to be a priority first maintenance duty. The O'Days I've seen have had deck problems and you should be aware. Unless they can prove its been done... I looked at an 81 O'Day and walking on the deck was like walking on a mattress. In 5 years you could be looking at a mess.
