Re: Buying a 30-40 year old boat - your opinions
Three years ago I bought a 1966 Pearson Triton. The previous owner had it for 13 years and did some pretty extensive restoration work. I've had no problems with it... Well, none that were not of my own doing
I recently decided that I wanted something a little bigger so I bought a "newer" boat, a 1986 Catalina. A real "young 'un" at 26...
My 1960 Triton is structurally solid and I haven't done much to her other than converting her into a liveaboard boat. Had the usual breakages when I sailed her from SF to SD but other than that she's fine.
PS - Hey Steve77, do you know who bought your Triton?
