Don't forget the value of a boat you know well, and of a boat that has been in fresh water (I assume yours falls into that category). Our boat spent its first four or five years in salt before being relocated to the fresh water end of the tidal Potomac for the past 20 years. When I pulled the chainplates this weekend to rebed them not even a bit of corrosion despite a pesky leak for as long as we have owned her. I doubt that would have been the case on a 25 year old salt water production boat. Anyway, just my two cents.
