Are you better off driving a new boat up on the rocks?
Thank you for bringing some humor in. What I meant is that, I guess, the older the boat (on these small budget sail boats), the higher the probability of hidden cracks, weird repairs, etc... that makes them less resilient in case something bad happens ? It's just my guess and from what I've seen when looking around for a boat. And these boats don't come with a "carfax" about their history...
