Welcome aboard. A well built cold molded boat will be light, stiff, and durable. But they were mostly built for racing, and they represent a very small percentage of the market. Glass boats built in the 60's tend to be heavy, therefore solid, and less prone to blisters than 80's boats. But older boats often need much work: new rigging, interior or engine. You really should read this site thoroughly and spend time with sailors and aboard boats before you buy one. Good luck, it's a great lifestyle.
