Re: Buying a 30-40 year old boat - your opinions

Well, let's look at it from another angle:
"What deficiencies would cause rejection"?
Structure: balsa core under the water line.
Corroded chain plates
Keel attachment
Questionable power plant
What ever bugs you.

Here's a 37 year old Cape Dory 25 resurrected from discard.
BTW, I'm a firm believer in a full keel.
