Re: Are Boats Built in the 70's Just Too Tired
I own a '73 Pearson 30 that I paid $4,000 for.
I have maybe another $3,000 in upgrades sunk into her, and most of that is simply a new mainsail.
She's not a bluewater cruiser, but I'd sail her up and down the US east coast all day long without worry. That's 40 years old.
