TLC vs. Almost new

I prefer a fairly new boat (4 to 10-12 years or so) unless an older boat is in really good shape or just a really good boat. And I spend first 6 months to a year going thru all the systems etc. Replacing any hoses, clamps, hardware, pumps, impellors etc. that I don''t feel good about, doing the routine maintenance (when did PO really change oils, belts & filters?) lubing all the hardware above deck and checking for bent, broken, corroded stuff. Obviously I just don''t feel comfortable till I''m real familiar with everything on board.
