Age & Seaworthy

When I first saw this, I thought you were talking about us older fellows...
But then I realized you were talking about the boats.
It is true that us older fellows & Ladies are seaworthy.
1. Is the boat older or younger than you?
2. Can your body handle the beating it will get out there?
3. Can that boat handle the beating offshore you will give it?

If you answered yes to #2 & 3 then you have nothing extra to worry about.
Now #1 is depending how you value Good clean lines of the older vessels.
