I think after 75 years of service it is more likely that I will be the little white pile of dust.

Glad to hear that fiberglass can stand the test of time if maintained. I guess now the big question is if the boat i'm buying is fully cored or just to the waterline. One problem with older boats is getting a hold of boat plans and design drawings. Can a surveyor tell if a boat is fully cored just by looking at a boat when its out of the water?
