Capttb, are you saying an older keelboat is going to be too old to be of value? If it's a 30 year old boat that it's too in need of repairs to be worth the marine survey and dragout?

I'm sure it depends on the particular boat, but is that a general rule?

It's a '78 Oday with a NASA employee as an owner, so he's been boasting maintenance... but it's just a possibility. There's plenty of fish in the sea and am likely not to buy the first boat I look at.
