Re: Life Span of a Boat

it's a good question and a lot depends on the builder. I have seen new boats with decks so flimsy they buckle when you walk on them and older boats with the glass so thick I am surprised they float.

Somewhere inbetween is the perfect medium between strength, lightness, and durability
