Re: Quality of boats that sit vs sail

Pumps that are not used can have problems, the rubbers on the hatches and other openings if they remain closed a long time on the sun will degrade. The engine if is stopped for a long time will develop rust on the interior and on the exhaust (that's why on car museums they will put the engines working once a week). The diesel tank if not full can contain water from condensation and the diesel can have biological growth.

But these are all minor problems if the price is right
