None of the many bad ideas in boat building showed up till the boat was in the 20+ year old range

1. Teak Decks screwed into the core EVEN Swan did this at a massive cost to whoever got stuck with the boat late in its life

2. Plywood core decks again a good 25 years till the real issues show up

3.. Gaskets on Pearson stanchions

4.Steel on frames on the many different Cals that used it

5. I have seen badly rusted Steel steering parts on 10 year old Beneteaus

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
