Re: Are Boats Built in the 70's Just Too Tired

Out of curiosity, in y'alls experience, what's the effect of neglect on a boat that's been on the hard instead of in the water? Let's say the same vessel was on the hard for 10 yrs vs in the water, untouched in both situations.

While things like blistering are obviously not a problem when on the hard, I am curious what the effect of the sun and elements are when the boat is on blocks for a long period of time.
