My first post
Greetings. Just retired to Florida Gulf Coast. Raced small boats (Capri 22 last) in midwest. Sold it when moved--looking for coastal cruiser 32 to 36 feet. Lot to learn about auxiliaries and cruising--different species than racing. But can sail in winter here!!!! Look forward to benefiting from more experienced and seasoned members.
First question: How much importance to ascribe to adage, "Older boats have better (thicker, little or no core) hull layups?
