indiansummer02 is on a distinguished road
A five year old boat badly maintained could easily be far less seaworthy than a thirty year old. Over time things like electric wiring deteriorates, as to pipes and skin fittings.

Seaworthiness, in my view is only hull and rig integrity the rest is just added luxury and convenience.
