Re: New(er) vs. Old(er)

That kind of absolute statement, that only a 3 - 10 year old boat should be purchased, is nonsense.

Read "This Old Boat" by Don Casey so you will know what you may be getting yourself into if you decide to buy an older boat.

Many folks are happily cruising on older boats, some quite older than 10 years. You may derive additional satisfaction from doing the work right on your older boat and knowing your boat and its systems inside and out.

There are incredible deals out there now on some older, well-made, boats.

BTW, there is no shortage of people in the boating industry trying to sell you unnecessary shizzle by every unethical sales tactic known to man....
